When I try to access some web site on firefox I get this:

enter image description here

The cut out rectangle is COMPANY-NAME-ROOT-CA and that issuer (COMPANY-NAME-ROOT-CA) was also added as trusted on some peoples PC.

But when I visit same site using chrome I don't get such warning and certificate issuer seems to be legitimate (e.g. Let's Encrypt Authority X3). Does this mean I am safe to access this web site using chrome?

I know we had some reservations company could have set up MITM kind of thing, but I am curious if I am safe with Chrome since we don't get above warning on chrome.

  • Are you certain that chrome shows correct certificate when your firefox shows this error,does this happen at the same time? – Vipul Nair Jul 27 at 10:38
  • @VipulNair Yes I am sure this is issue for example on Chrome "DigiCert SHA2 High Assurance Server CA ". Same site, yes. – user239155 Jul 27 at 10:43

    Check proxy settings too, maybe one of the browsers connects to the site using a proxy – Z.T. Jul 27 at 16:00
  • Or, possibly related to SNI. Can you tell us the URL of the site? – mti2935 Jul 27 at 16:07
