Safari Bypass Certificate Issue

Safari Certificate Issues

A work Around

Much as I like Safari (it really does make web pages look nicer) it's certificate handling is less than optimal. It is quite easy to get stuck in a loop with Safari complaining about the certificate letting you add it and then complaining about the certificate.

This is sometimes caused by automatically generated certificates having expired - but you don't get told this.

A work around from Slashdot ( helps:

  1. Develop > Show Javascript Console.
  2. Enter CertificateWarningController.visitInsecureWebsiteWithTemporaryBypass()
  3. Hit enter

And you can proceed. Of course you should fix the issue with the certificate.
