What browser / OS? Can you look at the certificate and see what's wrong with it?


When I hit login it takes me to the URL which works fine. I didn't try to log in.

You on a work/corporate connection by any chance? Maybe SSL interception happening?

Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.
