Question

Google.com gives me a bad certificate for icloud.com. It doesn't happen all the time; and adding an exception gets me a "Bad Request" message.

Every now and then, I'll open my browser to find - or find in the middle of a browsing session - that I'm completely unable to access Google.com. Secure connection (https) or unsecure (http). Thunderbird also starts giving me repeated error messages about a bad certificate, changing certificate permissions, etc.

The message in both Thunderbird and Firefox tells me that *icloud.com is trying to pass off its certificate as Google's. I called Apple support and they didn't know what to say; Safari was able to access Google with no problem, so they guessed it must be something to do with Mozilla products.

I've tried adding an exception. Going to Google then gets me a "Bad Request" or "Unable to Connect" message.

Why are Mozilla products seeking an icloud certificate for Google?
