    MS Edge: Website Certificate Errors

    My problem is I find MS Edge does not always react the same to sites that appear to have website certificate error problems.

    The following two url's are basically for the same site, due to a change in the name of the government department at some or other stage.

    Daily State of Dams

    Daily State of Dams

    Both sites offer a facility where one can display data accessed from a database in a map form. One can display the latest data for the most recent date in the data base which always works. But on the one site (the official new site), DWS Landing Page), choosing a previous date to the latest on will just display a place holder instead of the map,

    yet on the older site, it will display a website certificate error message, which then allows one to proceed anyway and then get the map.

    Can anyone offer an explanation why this is please? Iin other words why does MS edge not routinely display the error message instead of a place holder?

    Further, using another browser such as Chrome will offer one an option to display the image in a separate window which then allows one to see the image. This facility is not available in MS Edge consistently. Any reason why not?
