Re: addon updater

Hi once again,

I've tried to open with Firefox. It's worked. If I'm allowed to express my opinion, chrome-based browsers refuse to access the site complaining about a privacy error and a certificate that has expired.

Stay safe and take care,

I would imagine that we wouldn’t be able to access the site in that case along with everybody else


But that doesnt seem to be the case as others are not having problems whilst others are

I know there was somethingn on google news today about https certificates etc that expired. Could this have happened with nvda's site, or anywhere else that could have an effect on what's 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 message

The author of Add-on Updater himself (I) have experienced this once, and the workaround seems to be to visit 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.
