https://www.linuxmint.com/start/tara/ suddenly gave me a weird error.
other https pages are working so I figure maybe there is a problem.
Firefox 63.0 msg

Code: Select all

I didn't know where to report it so I apologize if this is out of place. Is it me, or is it the website?

It seems to be a DNS issue. Disconnect your Internet, run

Code: Select all

systemd-resolve --flush-caches
and re-connect, should be good then, at least it was for me. Otherwise wait a while for your local DNS server to catch up.

Confirmed. Any problems with www or www dot forums is a DNS issue. Our registrar is moving us. Should resolve itself.
