Yes, I already read https://support.mozilla.org/es/questions/940508?esab=a&as=aaq but the only answer was not too clear on solving my issue; and I don't know if I can re-reply to the same question and if it will be automatically bumped or not, so I decided to ask a new one with my details.
Could this behaviour be caused by any cyphring protocol on the browser? (excuse my ignorance, I am mostly a computer n00b) or could this be caused by any of my firewall default settings on Windows 7? I checked all such settings and did not find anything blocking FF, but could be some "incoming http" setting on the firewall? I do not know what this means so I decided not to touch anything in case I mess it up.
I also tried ticking and unticking TLS and SSL just to see if it helped but none of this did.
I googled as much as I could, but nothing seemed to talk about my issue, and if it did, there was no answer.

sorry for posting again but could you try this Add-on HTTPS-Everywhere
and see if it works for you?
Hello Alco! Thanks for your reply. I wanted to know, is there a way to fix this issue without using an add-on?
test in this page your browser ability to establish a secure connection:
Also, check in about:config page that security.enable_ssl3 has a true value.
Additionally, open your Profile Folder and delete the file named cert8.db
Restart the application and cert8.db will be recreated when you do so
Note: I think if the Reset Firefox feature is of any help
Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings
Please report back!
You're a damn genius. It worked. I will reply with the results in case someone else can benefit from this thread:
I checked the about:config and this was the data: security.enable_ssl3;true
I deleted the cert8.db file, and that seems to have fixed it! In case I need further help I will let the community know.
Thank you so much Alco, you don't know how annoying it was to have to type "https://" in every new tab after clicking on a search. I usually have more than 20 tabs open, so it's a pain in the neck!
Here's a thank you card for you! http://imageshack.us/scaled/landing/407/dscn3743n.jpg
I'm glad your problem is fixed!
If so, could you please mark this as solved?
