Firefox is blocking access to the Firefox support site!

Posted

If I go to support.Mozilla.org, or if I go into Firefox preferences and click on Firefox support, I get a screen saying that the site is unsafe. If I then click on "advanced", the site goes dead altogether. Why would Firefox decide that their own support site is unsafe?

Please explain the problem in detail. What happens? What are the exact error message(s) ? There is security software like Avast, Kaspersky, BitDefender and ESET that intercept secure connection certificates and send their own. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-and-other-browsers-cant-load-websites https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/secure-connection-failed-error-message https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/connection-untrusted-error-message [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-dont-load-troubleshoot-and-fix-errors?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=Error+loading+web+sites Websites don't load - troubleshoot and fix error messages] http://kb.mozillazine.org/Error_loading_websites [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/what-does-your-connection-is-not-secure-mean What do the security warning codes mean]

Actually, it started working today without my doing anything. But for the last several days, if I clicked on Firefox > Preferences > Firefox Support, I got a screen that said Mozilla had identified that site as unsafe. I had the choice of going back (recommended) or advanced. If I clicked on advanced, it went back to the page saying it was blocked.
