Three times so far today I've had Edge ask me to Confirm Certificate.
The last one was on the Herald website, cant remember for the other two.
I'd include a screen shot but GZ wont allow me to upload a photo for some reason.
Anyone else getting this today?

Post the popup text. You should be able to attach the image to GZ.

Did you actually look and see what cert you were being asked to accept?

Check subject name, issuer and dates.

If the subject name doesn't match - you may be being redirected to dodgy places.

I've had that too at work on a few machines today. Thought it was just our internal systems at play :)

I only screen-shotted it. If it comes up again I will try and capture the text.
There is nothing on the initial popup up that seems to relate directly to the website, but if I click on Properties it might say something.

Unsure why the screenshot wont upload to my gallery. Its only 44KB.
According to my profile "You have 189 kilobyte(s) uploaded to your image gallery, out of 102,400 kilobytes available. "

Also having problems posting screenshot.
I got the popup in Chrome a couple of times today on different sites including Geekzone.

 

Select a certificate

 

Select a certificate to authenticate yourself to ad.doubleclick.net:443

 



The certificate it offers to send is an internally issued one for Lync/Skype for Business for Client Authentication.

I've just been clicking Cancel, seems the safest option.

So not just Edge but also other browsers.
Are we all using Win10 perhaps?

Actually yeah I saw this earlier today.

Not the usual certificate error - it looks like an ad network is requesting a client certificate for some reason, so your browser is asking which of your local certs you'd like to use (hence seeing internal ones).

Didn't look much further at it but assuming it is an error on their part somewhere along the way.

Ahh, this apparently isn't related to the Safari 9.0.2 update then (which I installed right before the problem started happening). Nothing like a coincidence to send you down the wrong troubleshooting path...
