Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Posted

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.google.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

hi, this error message means that you're not connected to google directly, but something on your system or network is intercepting your connection. please click on the advanced button & then on "view certificate". what does the issued by section of the untrusted certificate say?
