Installing a Self-signed certificate on Firefox

Firefox will reject connections with self-signed certificates by default. In order to connect to FastX via the web with Forefox when using a self-signed certificate follow these instructions. Remember self-signed certificates should only be used when testing FastX. Trusted SSL certificates should be used during production.

  1. Open Firefox
  2. Navigate to your FastX server webpage e.g. https://server.example.com:3443
  3. Firefox will display a warning prompt
    firefox-1
  4. Click “I understand the risks”
  5. Click “Add Exception”
    firefox-2
  6. Make sure “Permanently store this exception” is checked
  7. Click “Confirm Security Exception”
    firefox-3
  8. Your certificate should now be installed and you can continue testing FastX
