You can check if there is more detail available about the issuer of the certificate.

  • click the "Advanced" button show more detail
  • click the blue error text (SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER) to show the certificate chain
  • click "Copy text to clipboard" and paste the base64 certificate chain text in a reply

If clicking the blue error text doesn't provide the certificate chain then try these steps to inspect the certificate.

  • open the Servers tab in the Certificate Manager
    • Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security
      Certificates: View Certificates -> Servers: "Add Exception"
  • paste the URL of the website (https://xxx.xxx) in it's Location field

Let Firefox retrieve the certificate -> "Get Certificate"

  • click the "View" button and inspect the certificate

You can see detail like the issuer of the certificate and intermediate certificates in the Details tab.

Regarding

"i want to switch off the certificate checking for websites how do i do it?"

There is no setting for that.

You can turn off OCSP -- certificate revocation checking -- but not the initial evaluation of whether the certificate is valid.

Note that well-run sites should not need exceptions. We hopefully can help you determine the source of the problem(s) you're encountering. The above reply is a good starting point.
