I'm trying to do what I've done for years - double click a word in another site then "Search Google for....." - and I can't. Secure Connection Failed The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

Secure Connection Failed - what a bloody joke!

This is presumably the latest update to Firefox privacy - and if so then say goodbye to me. What's the use of blocking such sites - sure, block illegal and dangerous sites, but blocking Google - what the heck!

Please explain or otherwise tell me what to do to avoid such problems. Of course, I know what else I can do - I can go elsewhere quite happily but why should I?

thanks for reporting the problem, so we have heard about this problem from avast/avg users whose security software is meddling with encrypted connections. firefox 61 introduced the better security protocol tls 1.3 & apparently avast can't cope with that yet.

please try to disable the scanning of https connections as described in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER#w_avast as a workaround.
