Kindly resolve this mater
There is security software like Avast, Kaspersky, BitDefender and ESET that intercept secure connection certificates and send their own.
Many users have been discovering a mysterious "man in the middle" that they can work around by setting Firefox's connection setting to "No Proxy". To try that:
You can check that here:
- Windows: "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Settings (previously "Options")
- Mac: "3-bar" menu button (or Firefox menu) > Preferences
- Linux: "3-bar" menu button (or Edit menu) > Preferences
- Any system: type or paste about:preferences into the address bar and press Enter/Return to load it
In the search box at the top of the page, type proxy and Firefox should filter to the "Settings" button, which you can click.
The default of "Use system proxy settings" piggybacks on your Windows/IE "LAN" setting. "Auto-detect" can lead to a flaky connection. You may want to try "No proxy".
