Antivirsu blocks a suspicius connection
My Anitivirus is constantly throwing a "Suspicious connection blocked error" firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an untrusted certificate to gmzdaily.com. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since untrusted certificates are issued by unrecognized Certificate Authorities
I dont know what is causing Firefox to establish a connection. IS this due to an extension I use?
Thanks for your help !

Hello, Go to about:config in your address bar. Accept the warning. Search for browser.newtabpage.enabled. Double click the result to set it to False. Then, search for browser.newtab.url. Right click it, and Select Modify. In the field that appears you can remove the link of your website. so that FF not opens "mystartsearch.com" Hope this solves your problem. if not, then send us your current extensions installed on firefox
I did per your instructions,except for "search for browser.newtab.url. Right click it, and Select Modify." I dont see a modify option. Attached the screenshot which also has the extensions.
Try opening firefox in Safe mode,
- Find the Firefox icon or click Start and type Firefox.
- Hold down the Shift key on the keyboard and then click the Firefox icon.
- In the Firefox Safe Mode window, click the Start in Safe Mode option.

Safe mode is opening. What should I do now? I'm trying to stop the gmzdaily.com making unwanted connections.
Does the problem still occurs in Safe mode ?? If it occurs then its not connected to extensions because safe mode disables all the connections.
so far no notifications from my antivirus yet.
Then, it must be extension problem, Try refreshing your browser:-
Try Refreshing your Browser:-
- To do this, click the menu button at the top right corner of the Firefox window.
- Click the “Help” option near the bottom of the menu.
- Click the “Troubleshooting Information” option in the Help menu.
- Click the “Refresh Firefox” button at the top right corner of the Troubleshooting Information page.
- You’ll be warned that this will remove your browser add-ons, reset your customizations, and revert other browser data to the default settings. Click “Refresh Firefox” to confirm you want to make these changes.
