In order to bypass the untrusted SSL connection error, you will need to:

  • Launch the browser from desktop
  • Manually adds the exception to bypass the untrusted SSL message
  • Declare the web driver to use the desktop browser’s profile instead of Selenium’s default profile
FirefoxProfile profile = new FirefoxProfile(@”C:UserschuanlAppDataRoaming¬†MozillaFirefoxProfilesqu7su2xj.default”);
IWebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver(profile); 
  • Once that is done, when you run Selenium, you will not get the untrusted SSL message again.
