Glad to report that, as of some unknown period before Netsurf
development update "3.0 (Dev) (03 Aug 2010 10:30) r10678", the above
problem has disappeared, AND it has disappeared when using the release
version 2.5! So maybe it's something the Co-op Bank has changed?
That suggests to me that it is not a change in Netsurf which has
caused the improvement for you.
I have added a comment to Netsurf Bug tracker ID: 2835477
"Co-op bank login gives SSL error 2009-08-11", but cannot mark the bug
closed if John Williams still has the problem with La Poste. (I have
advised him of this by personal email).
I still get the same message attempting to open the Snatander login
page. I have added a comment to the bugtracker.
