I get a "secure connection failed" error when trying to get into Yahoo email with Firefox.
I get the following error when trying to get into Yahoo mail with Firefox. There is no problem with Chrome so I don't think it's my machine. Any advice I get seems to require very complex programming solutions, but I'm wondering if there's a problem with the way Yahoo email is working with Firefox.
Secure Connection Failed
An error occurred during a connection to mg.mail.yahoo.com. Peer’s Certificate has been revoked. Error code: SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE

There is security software like Avast, Kaspersky, BitDefender and ESET that intercept secure connections and send their own certificate.
Often, "Secure Connection Failed" means "Connection Failed (trying to load a secure page)". In other words, not a security problem, just a connection problem.
Thanks for your timely help but it doesn't solve the problem.
I had that error a couple hours ago and pressed try again and was there.
Can try this : SAFE MODE
In Firefox Safe mode these changes are effective:
- all extensions are disabled (about:addons)
- default theme is used (no persona)
- userChrome.css and userContent.css are ignored (chrome folder)
- default toolbar layout is used (file: localstore-safe.rdf)
- hardware acceleration is disabled (Options > Advanced > General)
- plugins are not affected
- preferences are not affected
TEST''''is issue still there ?
If is still there : uninstall Firefox. Then Delete the Mozilla Firefox Folders in C:\Program Files , C:\Program Files(x86) & C:\ProgramData Then restart system. Then run Windows Disk Cleanup. (Note: This should be Pinned and run Weekly, If never done below expect 10's of gig's) Then run it again and click the button that says Cleanup System Files. Note: your Firefox Profile is saved. But you should make a back up before you do :
Reinstall with Current Release Firefox 59.0.2 with a Full Version Installer
