VMWare vCenter Web Client Firefox Issue

VMWare vCenter Web Client Firefox Issue

Problem


I wonder how many hours we've all lost trying to get browsers to connect to things, and the browser has not been happy? I needed to connect to a vCenter (6.5) web console with Firefox and was greeted with this.


Your connection is not secure The owner of {site} has configured their web site improperly. To protect information being stolen,
Firefox has not connected to this website.
Error Code: , SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER


Normally I use Firefox, because if there’s a problem I can simply add an exception and all is well, but this time there was no way to connect at all. (and because Chrome is assimilation)

Solution

Browse to about:config, and then search for security.enterprise, set it to true.

Now it should work.
