T-Series vs PewDiePie subscriber fight is getting out of hand

Some of you may have noticed, there is a fight for fame in the most used on-demand video streaming website – YouTube. The currently most subscribed celebrity – Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg (PewDiePie), may soon be surpassed by the Indian music record label T-Series.

Firefox 63 security warning issue

The latest version of the Mozilla foundation browser – Firefox Quantum 63.0, introduces an issue with some websites, where even though there is a valid security certificate, it doesn’t load the page.
The below image shows a website that i usually access using Firefox. Other browsers like Edge and Chrome validate the certificate correctly and display the page.

Previously there was an option to add an exception and continue to the site anyway (which is also described on the help page), but in this situation it doesn’t exist, probably because the certificate is found as valid. While i do not know the source of this issue, the fix is very simple if you encounter it – click on the shield icon in front of the URL and “Clear Cookies and Site Data”. In the popup click OK after verifying the domain name – this will clear all temporary data in your browser for this website and open it clean, the next time you load the page.
