I want to proceed to a trusted website after I recieve an SSL_ERROR_HANDSHAKE_FAILURE_ALERT
I am unable to find a way to proceed to a trusted site after receiving an "SSL_ERROR_HANDSHAKE_FAILURE_ALERT".
The site I am going to is trusted and uses a trusted CA certificate.

There is security software like Avast, Kaspersky, BitDefender and ESET that intercept secure connection certificates and send their own.
Hi rtkoch1, this particular error code often means Firefox failed to present the site with your personal certificate. Did the site issue you a certificate for access? If so, you may need to import that into Firefox.
If this is not related to a personal certificate, I'm not sure why you would get a handshake failure. Could you copy/paste any other information provided on the error page that might shed more light on the problem?
Did you try to close and restart Firefox to see if this recovers from this issue ?
Are you using Private Browsing mode ?
