Hi everyone,

on my Dell laptop I suddenly started getting a PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR a few days ago when trying to access websites like google, facebook, youtube etc.

Other websites like ebay, amazon or tripadvisor work. The problem also occurs with Chrome and IE.

I have checked date and time, run all troubleshooting programs, restarted router and laptop, cleared cache and cookies and deactivated the windows defender firewall. I have no other security software installed.

Now I am all out of ideas. Can anyone help?

Thanks Kim

Secure Connection Failed + SEC_ERROR_REUSED_ISSUER_AND_SERIAL when accessing google

It's been a while now since I randomly started getting the above problem. I've tried the solutions described here: https://cheapsslsecurity.com/blog/troubleshoot-secure-connection-failed-error-firefox/ I've stopped the Kaspersky Internet Security, I've installed and re-installed Firefox, I've tried editing/deleting the damn security ceritficates, mothing worked. And nothing of Firefox's help pages... helped either.

I'm using the latest Firefox, latest KIS version, all the drivers are up-to-date, system (Win 7 64-bit) runs perfectly with no error whatsoever, same for the Inetrnet connection. At this point I'm just about ready to flush Firefox down the drain because of this frustrating problem. It will probably go away after restarting the system, but I don't want to do this at Firefox's notice whenever it feels like it. I just want it to go away period.

Since it looks like it's impossible to attach a simple .jpeg to this message (file keeps loading forever), here's the full text of the error: "Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to www.google.com. You have received an invalid certificate. Please contact the server administrator or email correspondent and give them the following information: Your certificate contains the same serial number as another certificate issued by the certificate authority. Please get a new certificate containing a unique serial number. Error code: SEC_ERROR_REUSED_ISSUER_AND_SERIAL 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."

Side note: very funny having to confirm this question by checking my gmail address... which I can't access because of the reasons stated above.

Hello!

My partner is unable to access the following secure site via Firefox 55.0.3: https://mdlandrec.net/main/

He receives the error message: "Secure Connection Failed. The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading." (Full error message screen shot attached.)

Meanwhile, I am able to access the site with no problem, using the same version.

The error message suggests I contact the site owners, which is not possible. The site is a state government site and the owners are not responsive. I cannot wait for this problem to resolve itself. Is there any way to bypass this security so that my partner's Firefox can access the site?

Thank you! BenGW

I installed the HotSpot Shield add-on to my Firefox browser and whenever I enable it, every website (even ones I've never been to before) show an 'Insecure Connection' page error. I have Avast Premium, but I tried disabling every feature on it, including manually unchecking the 'Enable HTTPS Scanning' option. Nothing has worked. Also, I don't have Avast's VPN feature. Likewise, whenever I toggle HotSpot Shield off, I can access websites normally.

Please help.

I get the following error when trying to get into Yahoo mail with Firefox. There is no problem with Chrome so I don't think it's my machine. Any advice I get seems to require very complex programming solutions, but I'm wondering if there's a problem with the way Yahoo email is working with Firefox.

I access one TLS URL that's secured by user certificate. I had no problem importing the .p12 certificate into my profile's user certificate store ("Your Certificates"), and I could access the URL.

On the TLS URL system, for an unrelated reason, I had to generate a new certificate. My task was to remove the user certificate from my profile's certificate store, and replace with the new certificate.

The replacement was perfect: Delete the old certificate, import the new certificate. Enter the cert password, and see the new certificate, with its new serial ID listed in Firefox's certificate store.

When I try to visit the TLS secured URL, Firefox gives "Secure Connection Failed" and "SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE". It says "Peer has an invalid signature."

I'm at a loss how to proceed troubleshooting this.

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."

Using vrealize automation 6.2.1, when trying to connect to a remote console firefox errors out with the following: Cannot establish a remote console connection. Verify that the machine is powered on. If the server has a self-signed certificate, you might need to accept the certificate, then close and retry the connection.

When trying to permanently add an exception, the windows will not allow me to continue to the page unless i de-select the permanent option (making it only a temporary bypass). Its odd that I even get an error on this page since Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge display the page as trusted AND connect to the remote console just fine. Any thoughts on this?

this is my own website hosted on Media Temple. I have checked and the certificate is valid. This only started happening in the past day or so. The error cannot be recreated on other browsers. They are all working fine. I know there is a workaround by unchecking Query OCSP responder servers to confirm the current validity of certificates but this is just a workaround for me. Other people trying to access my site are getting the same error. I am running 58.0.2 on a Mac running Sierra 10.12.6
