    Hmmm...not getting it on IE or Firefox. CRAIG???

    Edit - just duplicated the error (in IE8). It appears that it stems from the hearth.com meetup popup.

    As a test - go to the hearth.com home page (www.hearth.com). Do you get the message? Go to the forum page. Do you get the message? I bet the home page doesn't and the forum page does.

    It appears that something is goofy for the meetup popup. Try signing in from the home page, if you have dismissed the popup previously, it should recognize that and you can move on. If you have not, right click on the Security popup and display blocked content. Then dismiss it. Craig might need to do some work for the future.

    The certificate I got earlier was from tapatalk, which I think is because it expired yesterday. I posted a screen shot in the other thread, but didn't get the whole thing.

    I'm using Android and it was related to Tapatalk, though I don't use it, nor is it installed on my phone....if that matters.

    I was opening the main forum page with the browser. I got a new phone yesterday, and haven't installed tapatalk yet.

    Tapatalk is mostly beyond our control.....

    I get those certificates sometimes on this site when I go to an invalid URL on certain browsers.

    What I thought was interesting is that I wasn't using tapatalk. I don't even have it installed. I know you said in the other thread that tapatalk has access to everything.

    Not on a mobile phone, just Firefox with cool previews (add-on) to view threads in a separate window/tab. And from 10pm last night when the certificate expired and now, a tapatalk security warning comes up on just about every thread I view. Is there any way to turn this off.

    Edit: I also get the warning in Opera browser, if I copy and paste the window to Opera.

    I will install the newest tapatalk - maybe that will fix.
    Now y'all see what I mean about tapatalk! A PITA, sometimes!

    I took a ride over to the tapatalk support forums. This happened to everybody yesterday. TT installed a new SSL license and it takes up to 24 hours for it to propagate across the routers on the net and to individual caches.

    They screwed up and let their license expire. But the renewal is for five years.

    Now getting another warning certificate thingy. This time "Akamai Technologies"... or something to that effect.

    You are getting that from a Java Applet. Probably from a Java update since a new one came out a couple of days ago. Akamai is the download manager that is used. It usually asks you to accept the new security certificate.
