For the past few weeks I get this certificate error when I go to the website:



I always choose "Continue to this website" with no problems. I never get this message when I respond to an administrators e-mail to go to the website through my e-mail account..

Forget that I was going to recommend you changed your bookmark to https://
But when I looked again I see that is what you use.

This is the first such report I've heard.

What browser are you using? (Model and version number?)

That message looks like what might be produced by a browser that is either too old or is configured to not understand the Let's Encrypt certificates that are provided by our hosting service.

My default is Internet Explorer 8 since my computer is running Windows XP.
I have yet to go to another operating system because I have devices (scanners) that use USB 1.0 drivers. I also have Firefox to contact websites that no longer communicate with IE 8.

There's your problem, Internet Explorer. I wouldn't use it if you paid me!

With an old XP/Firefox pc I find some links just don't work, and I'm constantly prodded to update Java - which it can't. I just accept any warnings about running an old version, though there may be some security hole.
