Lack of valid certificate and JOSM

Posted by Rustem Pasha on 5 June 2021 in Albanian (Shqip).

As everyone certainly noticed since yesterday the Opengeofiction site is labeled as insecure. I hope the issue will be resolved in reasonable period of time however now it makes impossible to upload and download files with the most typical version of JOSM (.jar files, used also in Windows JOSM installator).

Using hit and miss method I found simple solution to that problem. Go here: and download the .jnlp version of JOSM. It is slightly more annoying to use (starts longer, for Apple computers users it may appear a bit blurry) but at least remembers all settings and plugins from .jar version. After you try to upload and download using .jnlp version you will receive the window with the content pretty similar to the one from web browsers where you can allow JOSM to download and upload from “insecure” website called OGF.

Happy Mapping

Also remember to download openwebstart ( if you’re doing the .jnlp version! Otherwise Josm won’t open.

How long is the load time supposed to take? I can’t get this version to load the drawings from this website. It just keeps on the contacting server page.

You need to check your desktop guys

Is this the same problem I’m having? img

Yes, that’s one of the results of the certification issue.

n.b. The certificate has been reissued and it should no longer be a problem

I’m still having the same issue though

Same here, Even though the URL seems to validate in the Preferences-window in JOSM, i get red crosses in the background map and an error when trying to download.

And now it works for me too. Just downloaded some areas and uploaded some small edits. I hope the problems are over now.

Yay, it’s working for me as well!
