Fix Certificate Issues on Development Machines

Since we moved to the new AX (#Dyn365FO) we use virtual machines to perform development tasks which are provided as images by Microsoft and either deployed to Azure or downloaded and run via Hyper-V on a local server.

With the new Dynamics AX there are new APIs that are needed because of the technological changes. If you want to navigate the user’s browser to a different URL programmatically (and not by providing a link they can click) this can be done very easily by using the new class Browser.
