For the last week or so, I can't connect to website using Firefox. I have refreshed Firefox several times and then I can connect. However, if I close Firefox and shut down my computer, the next day I can't get to websites. I get an error message: Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to mail.yahoo.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

I am able to use other browsers to get to the websites. What can I do? Is there a fix? I have used Firefox for years without a problem. I have many sites bookmarked but now I can't get to them.

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 There can be two possibilities: one is that the server is outdated and doesn't support modern cipher suites, another might be that the server only supports a few cipher suites and Firefox doesn't support any of these.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