Covenant Eyes and Firefox Fixed at last!

I had a life-threatening issue…

I couldn’t browse many websites with , while Covenant Eyes was running…

After much knashing of teeth and going all sailor-lingo, here’s the fix from the kind folks at CE:

  1. From the desktop, search for Manage User Certificates.
  2. The Certificate Manager should come up, under Certificates – Current User, expand Trusted Root Certification Authorities and then click on the Certificates folder.
  3. In the panel to the right, right click on the CovenantEyesProxy Certificate and select All Tasks >> Export.
  4. You will be taken into the Certificate Export Wizard. Click the Next button at the bottom.
  5. Select DER encoded binary X.509 (.CER) and click the Next button at the bottom.
  6. At the File to Export screen, tell them to click the Browse… button, select Desktop, and type in CovenantEyesProxy in the File name field.
  7. The file path will be inserted into the wizard with a .cer extension. Click on Next.
  8. The message saying the wizard is complete should come up. Click the Finish button and you should get a message stating the export was a success.
  9. Go to your browser, open settings, advanced settings, and then HTTPS/SSL under managed certificates.
  10. In this window click on the Import… button.
  11. Navigate to the CovenantEyesProxy certificate on the desktop. Select it and click the Open button.
  12. Check the box for Trust this CA to identify web sites and click the OK button.
