This is the message I receive:

You can add wikitree.com to your list of safe websites in firefox's settings.

Or you could use a different browser, like Chrome.

I am not tech savy enough to understand all the ins and outs but I tried changing the firefox settings by making wikitree an exception and received this reply:

Your connection is not secure

The owner of apps.wikitree.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

apps.wikitree.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate expired on Friday, April 15, 2016 11:47 PM. The current time is Tuesday, May 03, 2016 11:37 AM. Error code: SEC_ERROR_EXPIRED_CERTIFICATE
Great testing, Connie. Looks like something did just happen that affected wikitree's acceptability by browsers. I'll alert Chris W to this (the sysop).
Thanks, Jillaine and Connie. Will investigate.
This should now be fixed. Thanks again.
Hooray!  I tried it and it works.  Many thanks.
