Repeated certificate violations during web searching

Previously I used my Windows XP Pro system for web surfing without problems. Along the way I picked up some malware problems. I ran numerous runs and several virus cleaners and eventually got error free detection runs and followed that with a reinstall of a fresh copy of Firefox. It didn't seem to help. I still get persistent flags raised of certificate violations. The Internet Explorer does not have the same problem. Any ideas are appreciated.

hello, a possible solution depends on different factors:

  • what is the error code shown under technical details on the error page?

in case the error code equals sec_error_unknown_issuer, please attempt to add an exception on the bottom of the error page & inspect the certificate (see the screenshot attached for instructions):

  • which issuer information does the certificate contain?

thank you!
