How to bypass the “secure connection failed” warning in Firefox 33

Firefox 33 no longer supports keys less than 1024 bits

You can fix this right from Webmin if you:

  1. use another browser that lets you bypass this type of error or
  2. if you temporarily disable SSL in webmin by setting
    ssl=0
    in
    /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf
    and restart webmin with
    /etc/init.d/webmin restart
    or
  3. login to the Webmin and select:
    Webmin -> Webmin Configuration -> SSL Encryption -> Self Signed Certificate
    Fill in the form (or leave the defaults) and then click the Create Now button. If you temporarily disabled ssl enable it with
    ssl=1
    in
    /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf
    and restart webmin with
    /etc/init.d/webmin restart
    This will update your self-signed certificate for Webmin and you will now be able to access the page from Firefox 33 (With the usual browser warning about an untrusted connection).
