For Chrome issues to be sure your HSTS is clear do this:

1. Open a new tab in Google Chrome

2. Enter this address in the address bar:

chrome://net-internals/#hsts

3. Type the domain name in the text field below “Delete domain”.

4. Enter domain name: xiaomi.eu

5. Click on the "Delete" button

6. Reload page of xiaomi.eu and you should be good to go!

Eh, a simple question arises in the mind of an old former sysadmin - why, of all the peculiar sites I visit, is Xiaomi.eu the only one where this problem occurs?

We adopted Public Key Pinning 1 year ago, not all web sites adopted it, the ones that did had issues, we've had issues in the past... WHY it happened this time is a mystery but I've since decided to decomission the use of Public Key Pins, for that we now advertise the headers with a max-age=0 expiry... You should now find the issue begins to correct itself.

One system admin to another :)

Firefox (61.0.1 on Windows) gave me a similar error (MOZZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_KEY_PINNING_FAILURE).
I solved by going opening the full History window (CTRL + SHIFT + H), right click on a xiaomi.eu entry and then clicked "Forget about this site"

Going forward on the next years SSL these issues wont be present.

I have already made the Public Key Pins obsolete! we remain with the HSTS Preload tho :)

Glad I came across this post. Last week I began to get the same error message when I tried to access these pages with Chrome. I had to switch to Microsoft Edge, but your work around worked perfectly and I'm back to accessing the pages with Chrome again. Thank you.
