In Firefox 4, I get:

tails.boum.org uses an invalid security certificate.
The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is not trusted.
(Error code: sec_error_untrusted_issuer)

When I clicked on the link for "The Amnesic Incognito Live System, version 0.7," I got the following message:


This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect
securely to tails.boum.org, 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.


I tried to go to this web site using the latest Tor Bundle for Windows XP Pro. Where do I go from here?

Yeah guys just click continue anyway, its just because the cert does not match the url exactly (you have to pay for trusted ssl certs so most sites just buy one cert for one url or make their own untrusted cert for free)

I took it as a challenge: How bad do you want that anonymity? IS it worth going past this ominous looking warning?

All you have to do is remove the "s" in the (https://) url so that it is http. Then you won't have to add an exception.
