There are several of us so its either a certificate problem OR a vindictive problem. Normally computers merely WARN about expired certificates they do not necessarily BLOCK access so it might be some sort of hijacking.

I spent almost an hour fiddling with my laptop thinking the problem was in my computer.

I see now you were talking about it in 'random thoughts'

I was setting up a new computer and just about lost it over the idea that the newest version of the browser had a new thing about it some SOB dreamed up ... then I tried the old computer again and ixnay there too

Been blocked 3 days now. Firefox is having issues, iPhone worked. I am not visiting on iPhone.

This seems to have happened a few times since the ownership change, so I figure something Zuga has programmed in there is not liked by Firefox.

I don't visit a ton. The gaming stuff I have mostly seen a few times already and the political threads are mostly a bunch of Trump haters slapping each other on the back saying "you go, girl!"

Cause of WOV and WOO blockage discovered by world's dumbest, most-inept and computer illiterate jerk?

If these access problems started on or about August 13th it is likely a Cisco VPN package problem marketed thru Switchilla.

The Switchilla VPN is a package marketed to private firms that need an 'enterprise level virtual private network' to unite diverse physical locations.

Its known as APIC-EM Application Policy Infrastructure Controller Enterprise Module from switchilla.

It uses an embedded cisco SSL certificate that Cisco unwittingly allowed to expire on the thirteenth of August.

So I think this is what detective types might call a "clue" to the WOV and WOO access problems.

Not "weird."

All about the browser. Seems the problem is with Firefox and IE.

apparently GoDaddy thinks they have ceased operation.

Serial Number: 9113f1538fc0b3d9
Revocation Date: 8/14/2018 4:00 PM
Extensions: 1
2.5.29.21: Flags = 0, Length = 3
CRL Reason Code
Cessation of Operation (5)

As for why IE and Firefox look at and respect that file, and Chrome and Safari do not, I don't know.

howto:
get the certificate info. I did this through Chrome, click on the Secure icon in the URL bar, click on certificate (valid)
from there, go to details and CRL Distribution Points. click on that.
download the file it points to: http://crl.godaddy.com/gdig2s1-696.cr
use windows Certutil to decode it: certutil.exe -dump gdig2s1-696.crl > cert.dump.txt
in the cert details again, get the serial number
search the dump file for the serial number. skip the leading zeros, I ended up searching byy using '0b3d9' at the end of the serial number to find the record.
