Trusted sites Chrome on Mac

Unsure which version of Chrome you are using? Type chrome://version into your omnibox (where the URL is) and your Chrome version number will be listed on the first line.  

Have you checked our known issues page? If your issue is not there, please provide a detailed description here: 

This is mi version Version 40.0.2214.94 (64-bit), running on MAC 

this is for W7, any one has done it on MAC ?

Your reply gave some pointers but not a solution.

As per what version of Chrome I'm working on 40.0.2214.94 (64-bit), running on MAC  (this was in my previous post)

All I want is to add a URL to the trusted sites list, I've gone through the posts and all I can find is the steps to do it on Chrome running on Windows7 (which I posted before too)
Is there any way to get the steps to add an URL to the trusted sites on Chrome running on MAC Yosemite version 10.10.2?

Thanks again,

Hi Joseph,

Do these instructions work?
  1. Click on the padlock icon in the address bar
  2. Click on "Certificate Information"
  3. There should be a blue-framed "Certificate" icon w/ a gold seal. Drag this to your desktop (or anywhere else)
  4. Double-click on the certificate file (should be named hostname + '.cer'), and it will open in Keychain
  5. Go to your login chain & category "Certificates". the certificate should be in there w/ a white-on-red X icon
  6. Double click the certificate to open the details
  7. Click the triangle next to "Trust" to expand the tree
  8. Next to "When using this certificate:" select "Always Trust" from the pulldown. The red 'x' should turn into a blue '+'
  9. Close the details window & enter your password (if necessary) to make the change to your keychain
  10. Restart Chrome & you should no longer get a non-trusted site error

  11. Let me know!
