We're currently trying to fix an odd SSL Certificate error that some users are experiencing.
Usually the issue will show up once out of every few pageloads and will show a message something like "ssl_error_bad_mac_read" or similar.
For anyone experiencing this, please clear your browser cache and cookies (just to give us the best starting point). Also clear "site preferences" if you have that option (that one is definitely in Firefox).
We renewed our site SSL certificate a few days ago so the issue could be related to that somehow. But so far all users reporting this issue say it started in the last 24 hours.
If you are getting the error please comment here with what error you see, what browser you are using and any clues you can figure out about what causes it to happen.
The really weird thing is it seems only to happen to very specific users, while others never have an issue.
We'll work it out eventually! Thanks for your help,
UPDATE: Looks like the ssl_error_bad_mac_read issue is resolved, but waiting to see if the issue stays away for a while before announcing success!
UPDATE 2: The ssl_error_bad_mac_read issue is resolved. Please let us know if any other security certificate issues occur!
