To whom it may concern, I just moved from Bali to the states and expected some hassle to log into sites, it happened as expected and that's ok. Followed all the instructions from a few different pages, changing date time zones, refreshing firefox, etc... Yes, still the same message keeps popping up every time I try to log into the website in the subject.

Also, your website doesn't take you directly to a page that shows a user how to fix the problem shown on the screen- not user friendly.

Attached is a screenshot of the message. Please advise me on what to do. I work on peoples resumes from this website and have deadlines approaching rapidly. Please email me if needed- you should already have that information. Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.

you could also check in the firefox menu ≡ > options > advanced > network > connection - settings... that firefox is set up to directly connect to the internet ('no proxy').

Firefox can't load websites but other browsers can

Hi Philipp, I did that and it still didn't work. Even went into my own settings to change the date/time- moved from Bali to Tx., still didn't work. If there's something else on my end that I might need to change, please let me know. Alot of my work is from the site I can't log into, so I'm getting behind every day I can't get on. Thank you in advance, Bill

That's ok to do with wifi right? I'm good, but not that good with the IT stuff... Thank you for your help so far though.  :)

oh great, thanks for reporting back!

just to be on the safe side i'd also recommend that you run a scan of your system with different security tools like the trial version of malwarebytes and adwcleaner which are specialised in detecting browser hijackers (sometimes they are making use of proxies to record your browsing activity or inject ads etc).
