Firefox Requiring Refresh

Firefox now requires a refresh to use every time it's opened. If I don't it keeps displaying that every page I attempt to go to has an expired https. It requests that I contact the owner to notify them of the problem and to try again. It does not connect to any webpage without a refresh. I've attempted troubleshooting mode and without a refresh, it still does not work. The refresh only lasts for about 10-15 minutes before another is required. All extensions are removed and even just attempting to go to google.com results in the same problem.

radi.stoyanov said Turns out the option DNS over HTTPS is what caused the problem.

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 There can be two possibilities: one is that the server is outdated and doesn't support modern cipher suites, another might be that the server only supports a few cipher suites and Firefox doesn't support any of these.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. https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/viewMyClient.html

Tried everything and it still coming up with the same error. Now it's occurring 5-10 minutes after a refresh.

Delete browsing, search and download history on Firefox {web link}

Remove a single website from your history {web link}

Open the History Manager <Control> (Mac=<Command>) <Shift> H. In the search bar, enter the name of the site. Right-click on one of the listings and select Forget About This Site. This should remove all information, including any site settings And Passwords.

You can check the connection settings.

  • Settings -> General -> Network: Connection -> Settings

If you do not need to use a proxy to connect to internet then try to select "No Proxy" if "Use the system proxy settings" or one of the others do not work properly.

See "Firefox connection settings":
