Firefox Version: 40.0.2 labeled up to date; OS: Windows 7/64 bit (Home Premium); Banking site fails to connect to a secure site with a message "Secure Connection Required"; Another site that uses simple htaccess to require password fails with "Authorization Required" message; Both of these sites open properly with Google Chrome;

I have been through the configuration options, and nothing seems to make any difference. Is there something that has changed in this new version that needs to be configured to make this work? I had not problems with this last week, presumably before and automatic 'upgrade'. Thanks, Steve

In addition to posting this here, I sent a note to my bank. It turns out that there was a problem on their end. Their support folks made the requisite change and the secure connection is again working. Whatever problem they had was apparently Firefox specific, but not a Firefox problem. Thanks, Steve
