None of the Links for DOS has had a LINKS.CRT.
I tried adding a blank LINKS.CRT file - nothing happened.
Where would one find such a file ?

Update:
OK, I found such a LINKS.CRT ! At the URLs in the first posting.

And you are absolutely right !!!!!!

With LINKS.CRT in the main Links sub-directory, no problems with certificates. That fixed that particular problem.

Thank you !! :)

To say I don't understand the full implications of this would be a huge understatement. But having said that, did you put LINKS.CRT in your main Links2 subdir? Does that help at all??

Are you sure this is not caused from stupid JS command (not supported from ANY dos browser)?

This is a nuisance, so I disabled that function.
Not the best option, but OK if I avoid important sites.
