If you trust the domain, or are using your own self-signed certificate, this error can be avoided by adding ignoreHTTPSError: true when creating the context:

... = browser.newContext({ ignoreHTTPSErrors: true });

or in Python

... = browser.new_context(ignore_https_errors=True)

or in C#

... = browser.NewContextAsync(new BrowserNewContextOptions { IgnoreHTTPSErrors = true });

Or when starting codegen:

playwright codegen https://localhost/ --ignore-https-errors
