I am told that they are encrypted and use mixed content. Firefox automatically blocks them. But, I need to download and use their scans and fix it tools. How can I fix this for these websites to work? I have already allowed them in permissions. It hasn't helped. My firewalls are not blocking them. Browser is updated. Firefox 43.0 Windows 7

Hello

I have had this issue for 3 days now. I am unable to access yahoo mail or yahoo in general because I get warning potential risk ahead message. I had to make twitter account to be able to get in touch with yahoo support but they just offered a yahoo link which, of course, I am unable to open because of "potential risk ahead". I tried solutions suggested by people here at mozilla support, like clearing history, cache etc but it didn't work. I also tired accessing yahoo via internet explorer and chrome (installed on my father's laptop, windows 10) Of course same message appears. I am using windows 7 64 bit. I also tried Edge and of course it says yahoo site is not secure. I have never had these kind of problems before. I was always able to access yahoo via FIrefox and other browsers. It's really damn annoying because i see no solution to this damn crap. Also I am unable to upload a 170kb screenshot to show you the issue. Just keeps loading and loading and it doesn't stop. So I guess I will just have to describe it:

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to guce.yahoo.com. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.

What can you do about it?

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

Websites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust this site because it uses a certificate that is not valid for guce.yahoo.com. The certificate is only valid for *.amz-aws.jp. Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN

https://guce.yahoo.com/consent?gcrumb=gscOGxw&trapType=login&done=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.yahoo.com%2F&src= Unable to communicate securely with peer: requested domain name does not match the server’s certificate. HTTP Strict Transport Security: false HTTP Public Key Pinning: false

It takes my to myemailxp.com Now I have a dialogue box which tells me my extension has expired, asks me to renew it, and prevents me getting into the browser.

I get a mixture of these when I attempt to load a secure website.

1.

uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not

trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. The server

might not be sending the appropriate intermediate certificates.

An additional root certificate may need to be imported. (Error

code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)


2. Permissions you have not granted this site any special permissions


3. Connection is not secure

I have deleted cert8.db. I have refreshed firefox. Some sites will load secure but will still not have permissions. Other sites i.e support firefox will load but it will be in all text be secure but will still not have permissions. Youtube the site will load but videos don't play and certain things on the website will just not load correctly. I am running windows 7 x64 and I use eset nod 32 9 as my anti-virus.

My firefox was working just fine then I woke up today tried using it as normal and pages would have all those combinations of issues. It always has on all sites with security now

2. Permissions you have not granted this site any special permissions

Other internet browsers do work and are secure I just really want to get back to using firefox.
