					Certificate Errors When Logging Into ‘Web Mail’.
There are several 'security pop-up’s which have to be clicked before actually getting to my mail. Could you
please tell me what I can do to eliminate the certificate error message?


The solution is to install the certificate (at least within IE 7) and then the browser "recognizes" the installed
certificate and the error should no longer pop-up.

There may be a warning box displayed whenever you switch between a secure and nonsecure connection or you
may have already turned it off.

Clicking on "Continue ..." may bring up two situations:

1) Pop-up "Certificate Error".

2) There's also the message: "To protect your security, Internet Explorer has blocked this website from
displaying content with security errors".




Here are the steps to follow to trust a web site certificate:

1. To Install a Site Security Certificate for a Trusted Site, Start Internet Explorer, and open CCIL Web Page
https://www.ccil.org. You may get the error when opening ‘Web Mail’.

2. Click on the Certificate Error Address Error Alert Button, and click on the View Certificates Link.

3. Click on Install Certificate Button.

4. Click Next Button in the Certificate Import Wizard.

5. Click Next Button.

6. Click Finish Button.

7. Click Yes Button to Install the Certificate.

8. A Pop-Up Window Will Appear Confirming the Installation of the Certificate.

9. Click the OK Button to Continue.

10. The Certificate Can Now be Viewed by Opening Internet Options, Selecting Content Tab, and Pressing the
Certificate Button. Select the Trusted Root Certification Authorities Tab, and Scroll Down to View the Site
Certificate.


 The following figures visually illustrate some of the windows a user would have when their PC is
 running Windows 2000. Please note, depending on the operating system (Win95, Win98, Win2000,
 WinME, WinXP, Vista, MacOS, or others just to name a few), the screen shots may vary. The process
 is the same, registering a site certificate.

 To fix the first situation:
1. To install a Site Certificate for a Trusted Site, Start Internet Explorer, and open CCIL Web Page
    http://www.ccil.org.

Here IE told you there is a CCIL certificate for this site, and ask if you want to trust the site.
3. Click on the ‘Install Certificate’ button.

This will bring up the Certificate Import Wizard.

 8. A pop-up window will appear confirming the installation of the Certificate.

 9. Click OK to complete the import and to continue.

 10. The Certificate can now be viewed by opening Internet Options > selecting Content Tab >
 and pressing the Certificate button. Select the Trusted Root Certification Authorities Tab, and Scroll
 Down to View the Site Certificate.

 To fix the second situation:
 11. Close Internet Explorer and reopen again.

 12. Get to CCIL Web page www.ccil.org.

At this point everything works fine but the next time you use Webmail the second message
"To protect your security, Internet Explorer has blocked this website from displaying content with security errors"
will still be there. This time we have to force the certificate installation procedure to run again before starting
Webmail.

13. At the top Address bar, change http://www.ccil.org to https://www.ccil.org by inserting an
additional letter ‘s’ into http.

14. Click on the Go arrow to start the whole process over again.

Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.6
Description of Mozilla Firefox
 Mozilla Firefox is a fast, full-featured Web browser that makes browsing more efficient than ever
 before. Firefox includes pop-up blocking; a tab browsing; a streamlined browser window that shows
 you more of the page than any other browser.

 Even though Internet Explorer dominates the Web browser market, you might wonder why if you
 spend some time with Mozilla Firefox. This light and nimble Web wonder brought tabbed browsing
 into the mainstream (IE7 recently jumped on the bandwagon) and offers countless ways to
 customize it through extensions and themes. Drag-and-drop tabs with individual close buttons help
 keep your content organized the way you like, and you can further streamline your browsing
 through the use of extensive hot keys. You'll find all of the regular options and features required
 for surfing the Web in the default setup, but the groundbreaking features come with the thousands
 of third-party extensions. Likewise, if you don't like the look of the default interface, there are
 hundreds of slick themes to use, though many weren't updated for version 2 at its release.

 Web Design: Firefox is the perfect browser for those involved with Web design and coding. A
 JavaScript debugger comes standard, and Firefox displays the page-source code in a new window,
 using indents and color-coded tags similar to an HTML editor. The built-in pop-up blocker works
 great for most sites, and new antiphishing protections and enhanced security for extensions are in
 the version 2 release. Anyone looking for a full-featured browser with seemingly endless ways to
 customize should download this powerhouse.
