I have some Selenium 2 WebDriver test cases for Firefox and Internet Explorer 9. When I access HTTPS URLs on IE9 (Windows 7 64bit) I get:
There is a problem with this website's security certificate.
At this point the test hangs and eventually fails.
I tried adding the registry key (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MAIN\FeatureControl\FEATURE_ERROR_PAGE_BYPASS_ZONE_CHECK_FOR_HTTPS_KB954312) that prevents the certificate-error-page from displaying - didn't work. Probably because I'm on Windows 7 with IE9.
Following this advice I tried using BrowserMob proxy, but there's very little documentation out there and I couldn't work it out.
Finally, I don't have admin access to my PC - e.g. no access to group policies. Selenium 2 WebDriver works fine on Firefox. I have all security zones enabled in IE Internet Options and if I run the tests on other URLs (HTTP) then there is no problem.
Has anyone got a solution to this problem? Does anyone know hot to use BrowserMob proxy (or any other proxy) effectively to overcome this issue?
