Dealing with the expired certificate issue, I encountered a deficiency on some 'recent' Firefox versions.

The instructions stated:

From the main menu in Firefox, select Tools | Options. Click Advanced on the left, and select the Certificates tab on the right.

However, on both Firefox_45.5.0.exe and firefox-45.9.0-2.exe, the tabs did not exist. I opened an older version, Firefox 45.5.0 Beta 8 (2017-05-19), and the tabs are displayed.

thanks!

That's weird, as here they're present, FF45.9.0 build ID 20210117203527
you can find the build ID by going to about:support.
The latest Firefox is on Hobbes, built with GCC 9.9.2, it seems fairly
stable

Hi Dave:

Thanks for your response. Is your "20210117203527" an experimental build? The latest Hobbes is: firefox-45.9.0.en-US.os2-i686-9.9.2-08112020.zip Mine is 20171005002840 .

There are also 686 and Pentium-m compiles. I was just reading that "Pentium" might be problematic. What would you recommend?

thanks!
Baden
