First Byte Time LetsEncrypt Cert: 'A' without intermediate cert; 'B' with
Dear Forum

We asked about this already a year ago, but we still have not found a proper solution. https://www.webpagetest.org/forums/showt...?tid=15749

Our Server is completely up-to-date. Qualsys gives us an A+ and likes TLS 1.3 We even have HTTP2 running... Testing from the US or Europe does not make a difference either.

To obtain a grade A here, we have to strip the intermediate Letsencrypt certificate, but - in doing so - Qualsys will then complain. With a full certificate Qualsys is happy, but here, we get a B.

Grade A :: ~400 ms :: [Stripped with just the first certificate]

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

*** 33 lines in between ***
4V/GVuFPm3bQLHl8kzk=
-----END CERTIFICATE-----


Grade B :: ~800 ms [Not stripped with first and intermediate certificate]
https://www.webpagetest.org/performance_..._byte_time
----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

-----END CERTIFICATE-----

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

*** 23 lines in between ***
KOqkqm57TH2H3eDJAkSnh6/DNFu0Qg==
-----END CERTIFICATE-----

Does anybody know how the have an A (for First Byte Time) here and an A+ with Qualsys at the same time - using Letsencrypt? Thanks so much.

Dennis
