I only experienced this issue when upgrading to 74.0, but it happens on websites multiple sites now. I have also verified via other browsers that this is a specific Firefox issue.

I have tried all of the recommended solutions that I have been able to identify: removed AV extensions, created a new profile, reset proxy settings, cleared cache & cookies, refreshed Firefox, restarted in safe mode to attempt to access the websites, turned off VPN, etc.

Looking for additional recommendations or solutions.

. Whenever you get a message / popup like that;

DO NOT USE ANY OF THE PROVIDED LINKS OR ANY PHONE NUMBERS ! !

Such messages are only Spam that could lead you to Fake Support. Not only can they damage or hack your system, they charge you to do so.

You can report such a site at; Google Report Phishing Page {web link} which is the same when done while on site by going to Help > Report Web Forgery

There is security software like Avast, Kaspersky, BitDefender and ESET that intercept secure connection certificates and send their own.

jamesafuf123 said https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1264659#answer-1237475 my ISP was blocking sites like that

cor-el said This usually means that Firefox wasn't able to find a cipher suites to use to connect to this server and reached the end of the list. There can be two possibilities: one is that the server is outdated and doesn't support modern cipher suites, another might be that the server only supports a few cipher suites and Firefox doesn't support any of these.

You can check your browser and possibly compare this with the server setup.
