This is a missing API in oxide to expose this to embedders. This is the error I’m seeing:

    [0527/094933:ERROR:cert_verify_proc_nss.cc(868)] CERT_PKIXVerifyCert for www.nlnetlabs.nl failed err=-8172

The following standalone QML example triggers the issue:

import QtQuick 2.0
import com.canonical.Oxide 1.0

WebView {
    width: 200
    height: 200
    url: "https://www.nlnetlabs.nl/"
}

Thanks, I've marked this as a duplicate of bug 1214034. That's the next major task I'm working on after the sprint, so it should happen quite soon
