Here we go. FiddlerRoot (DO_NOT_TRUST_Fiddlerroot) usually indicates unwanted software being installed named similarly to BrowserSafeguard, BrowserSafe, SafeGuard.

For more information on Fiddler: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiddler_%28software%29

Follow these instructions to remove the root cert fiddler installs. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/16827901/how-do-you-remove-the-root-ca-certificate-that-fiddler-installs

Then uninstall the fiddler crapware. Look for programs named similarly to BrowserSafeguard, BrowserSafe, SafeGuard.

Hello.

To confirm your browser is using the Google search bar please do the following.

  • Click the menu button New Fx Menu
  • Click Options
  • Go to Search on the navigation bar on the left
  • Check that your Default Search Engine is set to google

There is a chance that something may have changed it to a different website.

Hopefully this helps you!

What error cause is given why the 'Connection is Untrusted'?

more options

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)

I know what you mean, but anyways, have you tried clearing your cookies and cache? This sometimes causes errors when using a website.

  1. Click the menu button New Fx Menu , choose History, and then "Clear Recent History...".
  2. Under "Time range to clear", select "Everything".
  3. Now, click the arrow next to Details to toggle the Details list active.
  4. From the details list, check Cache and Cookies and uncheck everything else.
  5. Now click the "Clear Now" button.

Do you get the prompt to create an exception? Attempt to add an exception at the bottom of the error page and inspect the certificate. See the attached screenshot for instructions. Don't actually create an exception for the cert you received.

What's needed is the issuer information of the cert you received.

You may also post a screenshot of the certificate viewer window. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-create-screenshot-my-problem

I cleared the History as you suggested me but it didn't work. Unfortunately I don't get the button at the end of the page to add exception.

Click the Site Identity Button - Secure Connection - More Information - View Certificate https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-tell-if-my-connection-is-secure

Look for 'Issued By' and post that information, or better post a screenshot.

I can visit google's page.

Can you confirm you can visit https://www.google.com without a problem? If so, please check the certificate issuer as per above.

It would certainly help if you could mention what you typed.

If I press the link you posted I can't visit it.

What's wrong with it? Please click the link in your browser, not in the email notification.

I know it is weird but it;s exactly what is going on.

If I enter "www.google.com" on the address bar I can visit the site. If I click on the link you posted here (Mozilla's forum/Firefox browser) I can't enter the site.I get the error msg "Untrusted connection".

I can't understand how this is possible .....

Only to clear up a misunderstanding; Firefox doesn't have its own search engine. What may appear to be "integrated" is the "default search engine" as set 'out of the box' or what the user selected to be "their default".

The default about:home 'search container', the addressbar / URL bar, and the Search Bar all use the same search engine, which is set as the "default". But the Search Bar allows the user to change the search engine to what they want to use for each search without changing the "default". The other two areas don't allow for the "one off" change; they'll always use the "default".

That's what I thought.

Try to open https://google.com in Internet Explorer. If it works inspect the certificate by clicking on the lock symbol in the URL bar.

Who's the Certificate issuer? What's the Certification Path? Please provide screenshots.
