I am using the latest Firefox and also a few other programs, including the latest IE on Windows 7. All keep blocking this site.... I have to get on by saying I agree that it could be a fake site...????

Firefox error when logging in reads:-

"This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to www.net-model.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.

What Should I Do?

If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

Technical Details

I Understand the Risks

If you understand what's going on, you can tell Firefox to start trusting this site's identification. Even if you trust the site, this error could mean that someone is tampering with your connection.

Don't add an exception unless you know there's a good reason why this site doesn't use trusted identification."

This is very bad for the site and could put people off using it. Thought I should post it up and warn you all....

I am connected via Firefox 4.01 and I have had no problems.

You don't have to be mad to post here. But it helps

More and more, sites are changing over to https protocol. It maybe that is what is happening here, that it does not have a secure login, or the back end php /SQL is running at an old level, which new browsers do not class as secure enough.

Try a Windows update, it looks like your Root Certificates may be out of date.

Did you try and login via the secure login?

I've had that same message. I took advice from people on this site and was assured that it was safe to trust it. I did, and I've not had any problems at all.

Mind you, I do agree with your comment that it could be a deterrent to some people.

Maybe a new feature to keep the riff-raff away

lol Yep, as you can tell I still use it, but the problem is now not showing up, so I guess it is fixed. I was just worried that it could put people off using this fantastic site.
