Google Chrome and Safari Certificate insecure

I have had a few issues with certificates over time in Google Chrome and Safari.

NOTE: Firefox and Opera had no such issues. This was truly a Mac OS X Keychain issue that affected both Google Chrome and Safari.

They both trust the Mac OS X Keychain.

OK, so what was this all about. LastPass.com is something that some folks have started using because it just makes life easier. And it has been thoroughly tested by many geeks that I know. So I wanted to test it out as well.

I recently had an issue with LastPass.com’s certificate and it is from a well-known certificate provider. And not one of the less inexpensive ones either.

I searched and got a bunch of possibilities, none of which worked.

I finally went back to Safari to see if they had a way to fix the certificate issue since Google Chrome was a dead end on any possible fix.

Sure enough. There was a way to fix it using Safari. And voila now it works great  in both Safari and Google Chrome. Just have to look at the Certificate and it offers the fix by changing the settings through Safari’s Certificate viewer.

Basically does the same thing as opening the OS X’s Keychain Access in the Utilities folder. I had already tried that earlier several times with password lock open and it even prompted for password, but it didn’t work! And I know that you have to make at least a single change for it to actually fix anything you try to fix in the Keychain Access App. But as I say, it didn’t work.

But doing it through Safari did. Now I can get to LastPass.com with no problems and securely … no more complaining about the certificate that was already working fine in Firefox and Opera.

Even after syncing on iOS with iTunes after fixing it in Safari and Google Chrome, no go on LastPass app working though.

Likely need Premium. And no way to test that, since no trial available like there is on Android Google Play.

Yep. That’s what that was apparently. The Premium LastPass app works fine. Just deleted the iOS 6 LastPass Wallet after it auto populated with the Premium LastPass. I don’t keep any financial stuff in there but for personal prefs for some sites it’s a very nice program. And everything is encrypted and if I lose the password … then it’s my own daggone fault.

Power Outage and Other Thoughts

Well, after several years of no power outages to be speaking about (since Hurricane Isabel), we have been without power for about 15 +/- hrs.

Thank God for batteries; here at the house and at Verizon Wireless – otherwise I wouldn’t be able to check on news, weather, or other articles today.

Since there isn’t much else I am able to do this morning, I was checking the news related articles.

Here are some random thoughts…

Of course areas with greater population density get power back first .. It’s financially and publicity wise of top priority… Sigh.

Being on the grid for rural areas may not make sense, but it does make dollars… People, and not just in rural areas really need to think about that. Maybe it is time to think of alternative solutions to the Grid. Think about it… Think of the chaos of no electricity for whatever reason … War, weather, economic unrest, etc. Do you have sustainable alternatives?

Beatles. Apparently, John Lenin’s wife and apparently other Beatles member estates and likely Paul too, are still unhappy with their piece of the pie possibilities on the Apple iTunes Music Store. What is it with them anyway?

I understand that they want more money/control? But come on, this is a music store for pity’s sake! If they want to make money on their music, why not be in the largest music store out there?

We were talking about this and I was saying, this would be as stupid as going to an old style record store and not being able to buy The Beatles, and I was told that is what happened! There were record stores that weren’t allowed to carry The Beatles albums! They have always been unreasonable about who can sell their music and at what price! Unbelievable.

Well, I have an answer for them. If they want to be buttheads, I just won’t buy their music from ANY music outlet that is allowed to sell their music. Period. I have had it with egotistical people who think ‘they are all that’.

9.5% Unemployment. Even with the job increases in July.

Tons of banks, corporations, small businesses going under. Even Barnes & Noble selling out and the have been around for 100 yrs or more… This is nuts.

Businesses leaving the country. Maybe it is time to institute some of Austalia’s philosophies on jobs, what can be sold here, etc?

Our own government gives our tax dollars to bail out companies and banks that apparently have managed to squander it in many cases, and still aren’t giving the relief to the public that was promised, and now often still going bankrupt!

And who will pay for that? The taxpayers! From every angle possible; from interest rates, to prices at stores, to their businesses failing, to inflation, to higher taxes, ultimately, for something none of us little people – the taxpayers – have even authorized ‘our’ government to do … The taxpayers should never have been burdened with this. If a company or bank is gonna fail, let them!! Before we all go under with them!
