Getting this error message when trying to sharing an image by downloading it via the menu on openstreetmap.org:

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to render.openstreetmap.org because this web site requires a secure connection.

render.openstreetmap.org has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

Edit: steps shown:

openstreetmap.org any location --> press share button --> select format: any --> select scale: any --> press download --> ERROR!

Can you describe what URLs you were connected to and then what buttons you pressed on what order, so that people can reproduce it?

Edit: Thanks for the update. The relevant certificate has what looks like a valid alt name on it (render.openstreetmap.org), but it's self-signed (issued by "OpenStreetMap"), not by a 3rd-party trusted issuer.

According to the admins on IRC "should be fixed now".

The security error is fixed but I'm now getting a new error either saying Map too large, or a 504 error: Gateway Timeout The gateway did not receive a timely response from the upstream server or application. Apache/2.4.29 (Ubuntu) Server at render.openstreetmap.org Port 443

At a guess, your new eror is likely just due to the servers being busy. If that is the case I'd suggest one of the usual workarounds such as "screenshot a browser and edit the result".

It works well for me now, with the scale as yours. You should try again.
