I have a fresh install of Windows 7 Enterprise with IE 9. All updates have been done.
I am trying to navigate to an SSL web page that runs under a self-signed cert. For a long and valid list of reasons this is not going to change. In the past (e.g. IE 8) I would get a certificate warning page after which I could click on "Continue
to this website" and it would take me to the login page.
In trying this in IE 9, after clicking past the certificate warning all I get is "Internet Explorer cannot display the page". No opportunity to view the certificate, or continue to the page.. nada, it just refuses to serve up the page. I
- added the site to my Trusted Sites list
- checked and ensured that SSL and TLS are all enabled.
- repeatedly re-set IE to defaults
- tried uninstalling update #KB2585542 (found this on a forum post somewhere)
- searched in vain for any sort of Event Log entry
This is beyond frustrating. Not only is IE 9 arbitrarily deciding what I can and cannot browse to but it isn't offering up any sort of way to troubleshoot / mitigate what is happening.
I'd appreciate any suggestions on how I can get past the warning and view the page in question.
