Firefox is suddenly and erroneously blocking my access to my bank, due to "security", but I'm using a VPN. How do I override the block? There is no lock icon on the address.

Since the last update, Firefox is erroneously blocking my access to my bank, due to "security", but I'm using a VPN. How do I override the block? There is no lock icon on the address.

Chosen solution

When I visit the site, it sends me a brand new certificate issued yesterday.

Could you try clearing Firefox's Cache to see whether that lets your Firefox get the new certificate? See: How to clear the Firefox cache

If you have a large hard drive, this might take a few minutes.

Any difference?

Thank you all for your help. I live abroad, 7 hours ahead, so didn't go through the process last night. This morning, I tried connecting again, before clearing the cache and miraculously, it went through without a hitch. Woo hoo, I'm literally back in business.

Again, thank you all and have a good week. Stay safe and healthy.
