How do you connect FIREFOX to the internet so you can sync when you get a Secure Connection Failed error when you try to login to FIREFOX?

Posted

I HAD Firefox on my laptop and it was working fine. Had some problems with my ISP but thought it was my laptop so made the mistake of uninstalling Firefox. Got my ISP back up and re-installed Firefox but now can't connect to my Firefox account because it says I'm NOT connected to the Internet - gives me a Secure Connection Failed error. I need to sync my laptop to my PC, phone and tablet but can't even login to do so. I'm using a Windows 10 system on my laptop. I KNOW I'm connected to the Internet because the Edge browser on my laptop works fine.
