Chosen solution

hi, firefox is able to open wikipedia out of the box just fine. if you are getting a security error message on popular sites like this most likely that something is wrong with your setup or network, and you should look into that since in some cases it may be malware intercepting secure connections!

first please make sure that the date, time & timezone are set correctly on your system. if this doesn't solve the issue (or it is already set properly), a solution depends on the individual circumstances:

  • what is the error code shown when you click on advanced on that error page?
  • please also give us more information about the error by clicking on the error code, copying the text to the clipboard and then pasting it here into a reply in the forum like shown in the screenshot.

thank you!
