Opera browser is having a problem loading twitter, since today.
It refuse to load twitter CSS.
twitter's CSS is this:
when loading it, the error message is:
Unable to complete secure transaction
Secure connection: fatal error (1066)
Unable to verify the website's identity (OCSP error).
The response from the online certificate validation (OCSP) server was too old.
Check that the address is spelled correctly, or try searching for the site.
this problem started to happen on .
OCSP is Online Certificate Status Protocol, a protocol to check if a certificate is still valid. (certificates are used for secure connection (https), see: Intro to Public-key Cryptography for Sys Admin; What's HTTPS, SSH, SSL, TLS, AES, SHA-1, MD5, ….)
It seems, either twitter's certificate has problems, but Firefox and Google Chrome doesn't have the problem.
OCSP is enabled in Firefox by default. See: http://kb.mozillazine.org/OCSP_error_when_accessing_secure_sites
There does not seem to be a way to disable OCSP in Opera.
Nor does it seem possible to turn off https in twitter today.
The problem disappeared today.blog comments powered by Disqus
