Internet Explorer Missing 'Continue To This Website' Option Using Internet Explorer 10 or 11 and visiting a website with a weak or untrusted SSL certificate, such as those typically found on some home routers, legacy RAID management cards, etc. You may find that you receive the error "There is a problem with this website's security certificate". In versions past, you could simply click 'Continue to this website (not recommended).' and go about your business... However, in later versions of IE, you may find this option is no longer present... No problem, just use Firefox, right? Wrong... Firefox also throws an error "Connection reset by server"...
