Your assumption, though it appears logical, isn’t correct. Firefox
doesn’t rely on Windows for certification. It has its own certifications,
or whatever the correct term is.
Chrome browsers and browsers in general rely on Windows for
certification. I don’t know if you are using Windows 10 if version matters
nor do I know if whether your updates are current matters. But without
more information about what people are using, generalizations can’t be

Subject: Re: [nvda] addon updater
I can access nvda-project.org, nvaccess.org and the nvaccess.com redirect
just fine at least via the web.
I can download from both manually.
Just did an ipconfig/flushdns and I got back in.
So yeah who knows nvda updaters continue to refuse to work so if its a error
on my end I should have had other things going on.

Hi from me,
Just to let you know that I'm unable to access the NV access site, nor am I
able to do the add-on and/or NVDA updates.

Not only get an error checking for addon
updates, also checking for NVDA updates pops up the same error
The author of Add-on Updater himself (I) have experienced this once, and
the workaround seems to be to visit addons.nvda-project.org website using
your preferred web browser. If NV Access server was offline, chances are
that folks would have reported problems with not only Add-on Updater, but
NVDA update checks as well, affecting folks who do ask NVDA to check for
updates every day. Since it doesn't affect everyone, chances are that the
computer (more specifically, the operating system) might be assuming that
the web trusts soon to expire security certificate without realizing that it
isn't - connecting to websites flagged as secure (such as NV Access website)
would inform Windows that the web is safer again.
