Hi,

I get this error message when I try connecting to Netflix and some other sites such as Origin when I am connected to a WiFI:

Your connection is not secure

The owner of www.netflix.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox may only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate.

Report errors like this to help Mozilla identify and block malicious sites

www.netflix.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed. The certificate is only valid for .

Error code: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT


HOWEVER, the sites work fine when I plug in my phone and use it's hotspot data. Any ideas? I've been trying for weeks, thanks.

So basically, Iv been trying to access steam & thesimsresource but weirdly an error message comes up It looks like this:

Unable to connect

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at www.thesimsresource.com.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Im really confused as this has never happened before. If you have an answer to my problem please explain in a simple way as all this is extremely complicated.

Hello

I have had this issue for 3 days now. I am unable to access yahoo mail or yahoo in general because I get warning potential risk ahead message. I had to make twitter account to be able to get in touch with yahoo support but they just offered a yahoo link which, of course, I am unable to open because of "potential risk ahead". I tried solutions suggested by people here at mozilla support, like clearing history, cache etc but it didn't work. I also tired accessing yahoo via internet explorer and chrome (installed on my father's laptop, windows 10) Of course same message appears. I am using windows 7 64 bit. I also tried Edge and of course it says yahoo site is not secure. I have never had these kind of problems before. I was always able to access yahoo via FIrefox and other browsers. It's really damn annoying because i see no solution to this damn crap. Also I am unable to upload a 170kb screenshot to show you the issue. Just keeps loading and loading and it doesn't stop. So I guess I will just have to describe it:

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to guce.yahoo.com. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.

What can you do about it?

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

Websites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust this site because it uses a certificate that is not valid for guce.yahoo.com. The certificate is only valid for *.amz-aws.jp. Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN

https://guce.yahoo.com/consent?gcrumb=gscOGxw&trapType=login&done=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.yahoo.com%2F&src= Unable to communicate securely with peer: requested domain name does not match the server’s certificate. HTTP Strict Transport Security: false HTTP Public Key Pinning: false

Last night I did the new firefox update and every since then I have been getting the following error on multiple sites. Including Tumblr, Google, yahoo mail, and many others.

"Network Protocol Error

Firefox has experienced a network protocol violation that cannot be repaired.

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because an error in the network protocol was detected.

   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem."

I have tried searching out the answer on here and most said to just clear out the cache which is what I did and I am still receiving the error at random times on different sites. I can refresh and the site will load but then if I got to another page of the same website or a different site the error will just appear again. Thanks in advance!

One particular web site won't load, and I was previously able to view the site roughly 2 weeks ago. It's a free WordPress site/blog.

I keep getting the error message "The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading." I've tried deleting all cookies and emptying the cache with no success. I also tried a "DNS Flusher" with the same result.

I've followed all the recommendations on the Firefox Help link and checked the Community and FAQ sections with no luck.

I can view the page in Safari. The web site owner can view the web site using a setup similar to mine (Mac OS 10.5, Firefox 12.0).

Nothing I know have has changed since I was able to view the site 2 weeks ago i.e., I'm not going through a proxy server nor do I have any secondary security or anti-virus programs running.

Any help would be appreciated.

Firefox-pages won't load properly and it doesn't recognize Twitter's certificate.

I'm not great with computers, so please help me if anyone can. I've been searching for a solution for 5 hours now and I'm desperate...

My Firefox has been running a little slow the last couple of days, and sometimes temporarily stops working a couple of seconds when I'm trying to load a page. So I tried to refresh firefox through the Troubleshooting-page. After doing that, I was gonna reinstall my Addblock Plus, but when visiting about:addons, the page looked weird. The text was all in the Time New Roman-font, and there were no pictures. It was like the page hadn't loaded properly. I refreshed Firefox again, but this time I deleted all Cache and Cookies and the saved internet information. But the problem remained. I tried to install Adblock anyway, but it didn't work.

I then uninstalled Firefox from the computer and downloaded the latest version. The problem still remained.

I was now suspecting that maybe I had picked up some nasty virus or something, so I reset the computer two weeks to a date where I was pretty sure it didn't have these problems. But instead of solving my problem, it gave me another one: I couldn't access Twitter. According to Firefox, the certificate wasn't correct and the only option available was "Get me out of here". The technical information said that this was the problem: sec_error_unknown_issuer

At one point, even Google got the same certificate error, and another time I could access Twitter, but it was in the same "Times New Roman"-view with only basic text and no images. And ALL Firefox related pages were like that too.

I have temporarily fixed the problem by asking my antivirus software (ESET NOD 32) to deactivate its HTTP Control, but that doesn't seem like a safe solution to me. I'd just like to know WHAT THE HECK is going on, and how can I properly fix this?

Info: -I'm using Windows 7

I have tried: -Deleting all Cache and Cookies (together with all other internet history) -Refreshing Firefox -Uninstalling and re-installing Firefox -Deleting the Cert8 file -Restarting the computer (multiple times) -Scanning my computer for virus (Using ESET NOD32)

I don't understand what could cause Firefox to not being able to load its own sites properly... Or why Google and Twitter's certificates suddenly stopped working after reinstalling Firefox. Any ideas or help are appreciated. Especially if you keep it simple, since I'm not awesome at computers and English is not my native language .

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

Ironically the html source shows the page is there and complete. Under 'Preferences->Privacy & Security I have unchecked 'Block dangerous and deceptive content" to no effect.

All is fine under Safari. This is a critical issue as I am having to abandon my much preferred Firefox for Safari, which does not have issues.

So I've upgraded pfsense (which has my own self-signed cert for the GUI) to 2.3. For some reason, this has broken management for it via Firefox. It still works with Chrome.

Here is the error- The connection to 192.168.50.1:449 was interrupted while the page was loading.

   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.

What I have done to try to rectify this.... 1) Checked that both time of pfsense and my computer match (they do and Chrome works right with this anyway.) 2) Manually imported both the CA and cert. 3) Deleted cert8.db and let FF recreate it. 4) Tried a new profile (which works once and then fails as soon as FF is restarted.) 5) Tried on both Windows and Linux (neither side works.) 6) Generated a new cert for the GUI (which Chrome again just accepts but FF refuses.)

FF version is 45.0.1

I haven't seen anything else that addresses this. The key did not change in the upgrade. Even had it done that, I would think that by generating a new cert entirely should prompt for making a permanent exception again.

I've narrowed it down to FF as both Chrome and Vivaldi work perfectly on it. Nothing seems to have helped and the FF landing page doesn't reveal any useful info (as in SEC_ERROR_INSECURE_CIPHER or the like.)

Any help is very much appreciated as I hate opening Chrome solely to manage my firewall.
