What happens when the certificates are changed to a 1 year expiration later this year ? Do the browsers update them automatically and will older browsers, such as Firefox 52.9.0ESR also update the certificate lists ? What will also happen if / when they go to HTTPS over DNS ? Will older browsers still work, will my router need to be updated or is that done at the ISP (ATT UVerse) ? ? If worst comes to pass, I would need the latest Opera or Chrome or Firefox on my Windows 10 Laptop
Thanks

I know the sites have to get the cert from the cert company, but how do the browsers validate them ? Do they all just query the CA company site to check them ? Will older browsers still work with the proposed changes ?

If the certificate expired and not renewed and you still need to visit the website, just make it an exception in your browser.

No idea about old browsers.
