When I try and use the private messenger on here I keep getting a warning page from Mozilla Firefox saying that the connection is not secure?

It doesn't happen using Safari.

Is because the 'vac's certificate uses SHA-1 which is not considered secure any more, and I *think* that firefox is about the only browser taking a responsible attitude to the problem and flagging it up.

Chrome doesn't like it either.

The world will probably end

I'm sure Rav and the boys can upgrade the certificate soon enough (no idea though). Even the free ones from 'Lets Encrypt' aren't SHA1.

In the meantime use Safari I guess.

You can just add an exception in Firefox for now. I already had (so initially was "what are you talking about?!") ??
