Today it came to my attention that in newer versions of Chrome and Mozilla, StartCom was removed from the browsers trusted CAs due to WoSign (purchaser of StartCom) doing dubious actions and bussness activities (e.g. unauthorized certificate issuance). I couldn't notice before because apparently only certificates issued after 21st October 2016 were distrusted previously.
