NET::ERR_CERTIFICATE_TRANSPARENCY_REQUIRED with Let's Encrypt R3 and other SSL providers

When adding, updating or replacing an SSL certificate you encounter the error "NET::ERR_CERTIFICATE_TRANSPARENCY_REQUIRED"

This is most common with LetsEncrypt SSL as they seem to be overutilizing resources.

The issue happens when the LetsEncrypt servers are behind on pushing transparency proof logs and google chrome caches the cert info before those logs are in place. In most cases this will resolve itself within 5 minutes or so but may require you to close the browser and reopen it or even clear the cache on the affected browser. In some cases it can take much longer and may even require a reissue of the cert. 


How to solve: Page content blank when printing but works in InPrivate/Incognito view

This is an odd one and actually stumped me for a bit, in order to solve I used f12 developer tools to uncheck specific css attributes and tested the print function again. It ended up being a font-family attribute in the all css style.

Once removed the page printed all of the content on all browsers once again. I also tried adding a second font but that also did not solve the problem. It seems that the font was not being imported correctly or was corrupt. Replacing the font using the @media print solves the issue.
