I installed the httpseverywhere add-on. I don't know if it has anything to do with the problem I am having but every time I try to access a page nearly all pages but not quite all I get a warning instead of what I am looking for. The warning reads This Connection is Untrusted You have asked Firefox to connect securely to... (some URL (the one on my screen now is "add-ons.mozilla.org")), but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.... The goes on with explanation of why this could be as well as what I should do about it. It then gives me a button that reads "Get me out of here" and a link "Technical Details" I have tried everything including resetting Firefox to its original settings, reinstalling Firefox, uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. The computer is a Dell Latitude, I just upgraded it to Windows 10 and installed Firefox. Do I need to revert to Windows 7.1? How can I get my favorite Web browser back to usability?

When I attempt to buy a product online using Paypal I get an Untrusted Connection message. If I open Safe Money and perform the transaction from there, I do not have a problem. This was not a problem with earlier versions of Firefox.

Message text. "This Connection is Untrusted You have asked Firefox to connect securely to www.paypal.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure. Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified. What Should I Do? If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue. This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate."

i just updated to the latest version of firefox, now it will not let me use the usajobs.gov website. it keeps saying that it is untrusted, and since it uses https, it can not have an exception so i can not continue to the page. It also says that the site is not presenting trusted identification. i need to check my job applications, and search for jobs. this needs to be fixed asap. it does allow my to go to the home page, but when i try to log in, the message pops up.
