Who knows, however who knows, Its more likely a lot of certs got
updated at once, I just got updates to chrome, edge, windows, and
a bunch of other things all of a sudden.
So could simply be that a lot of stuff suddenly needed renewing
but whho knows we may never know.

message about the problem this morning and that’s why I
thought it was likely a certification problem.

Hmph, well it wasn't just the update addon but nvda
update checker itself.
Update check and the addon update seem to work again but
it did this yesterday so we will see tomorrow.
It could simply be that certs were updated but its that
propergation deal with the dns that would make sence
But who knows.
Its almost like it stops then works again who knows.

I don’t know how the add-on determines if the
site has proper certification. I would think others
could discuss that. It may be that the add-on can’t
determine the site is certified. The first
discussion today was about the update add-on and
that was what I mainly intended to comment on,
though I did comment on browsers in my last

Hmmm just tried in edge and still can get access.
I just got the latest windows optional cu, so if
I had a bad cert, well I wouldn't be able to get
updates and windows automatically gets them.

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 made.

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

Just to let you know that I'm unable to

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.
