Remember Mismatched Domains

Now I could see where the mismatched domains popup warning might be useful for some, but for me it just tends to get in my way. If you have not seen there errors in Firefox, they come up with somebody’s SSL certificate doesn’t match the domain name it is registered to.

The Remember Mismatched Domains extension for Firefox is here to save the day.

The Remember Mismatched Domains extension for Firefox and Thunderbird adds a “Don’t warn me again about this certificate for this domain” checkbox to the Domain Mismatch and Expired Certificate warning windows. When selected the domain name and security certificate domain pair (or certificate and expiration date pair) is stored in a Firefox / Thunderbird preference and the security error dialogue will be bypassed on subsequent visits.

Well now if this bugs you as much as it bugs me, you can get rid of it with the Remember Mismatched Domains extension.

Extentions and Security

Over the past few weeks, I have seen more extensions that have “warnings” on them, like this:

It does not track webpages you visit. It does not change your browser behaviour, browser homepage or search results. Please see our privacy policy here…

Now when I see something like that telling me it isn’t watching me, I know most of the time it is. I just want to tell everybody to be careful with extensions that give you warnings like this.
