I think I accidentally changed the proxy settings on Firefox for Mac V. 106.0.1. I get an error message with most websites now, including all Google sites, stating

"Secure Connection Failed. An error occurred during a connection to www.google.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR. The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem." Please advise..

You can try to disable DNS over HTTPS.

Are you using a proxy or VPN?

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":
