I see a NET::ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID error in Brave/Chrome on Mac only when attempting to access https://search.brave.com. Safari has no issues accessing this site. I haven’t encountered this problem with any other sites I’ve visited in Brave.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Launch Brave
- Attempt to access https://search.brave.com (or just search with Brave Search set as the default search engine)
I’d expect to see the Brave Search page.
Brave Version( check
Version 1.61.109 Chromium: 120.0.6099.144
This appears to be related to the GTS Root R1 certificate, which I have installed and is valid in Keychain. I’ve tried several troubleshooting steps already mentioned on other FAQ pages, such as disabling all of my extensions, making sure the browser and OS are up to date, etc. I have no antivirus or VPN enabled. I’m behind a standard Google Fiber router with no special configuration.
I admit some ignorance about certificates—the one thing that doesn’t add up to me is that this certificate appears to be for ‘*.google.com’. Otherwise, the certificate is installed, valid, and has not expired. However, when I click on “Not Secure” next to the URL, it states that the certificate is not valid and I’m able to view all of the same info about the certificate that I can see in Keychain.
