  With Brenda's permission, I am reporting her direct replies to me back to the list.  I also
have a jpg screen image that I will need to upload somewhere, such as into a Bugzilla issue.
 In a follow-up along with the message below I learned that

  1. The browser is Firefox

  2. The URL is https://www.openoffice.org

  3. From the screen capture, the message that arrives most-recently is as follows, with the
home page visible and a pop-under beneath the address bar (which has a caution ! sign in front
of the URL):

     3.1 "This website does not supply identity information."
     3.2 and beneath that,
         "The connection to this web site is not fully secure
         because it contains unencrypted elements (such as
         images)."
     3.3 There is a help button and a "More Information ..."
         button.

  Now that I think about it, that is all you would see that is relevant in the .jpg, so I
won't bother to upload it.
.jpg did not make it to the list, which is normal. More or less all attachments get stripped
off.

however I checked on the vm, the certificate is active.

2 good possibilities:

-  firefox dns caching does not resolve to our machine
-- solution clear the firefox history and try again.
- Firefox has the old certificate stored and for some reason did not update it.
-- the certificate was changed some 5-6 month ago, due to a security fix.

  It said something like the security certificate was for another website, I
  think.  I tried it twice and it did it both times but once I decided to go
  ahead to the website, since I had been on it before, it hasn't done it again
  (I'm assuming b/c my browser saved my preferences) but it is showing a
  warning up near the domain address bar.  I attached a screen shot of the
  warning.  Normally, I wouldn't go on a website if I got that warning (b/c
  the warning screen from google recommended NOT continuing to the site) but
  since I've used Open Office before I did.
