Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.google.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

After updating Firefox yesterday and restarting my Win7 I was unable to open my Firefox. The error message was "Can't open this item. It might have been moved, renamed, or deleted." I was given the choice to remove it or not. When I chose not, the event and error message reiterated; so I chose to remove. Thereafter I've been unable to bring up or download Firefox, with the following error message with each try:

XML Parsing Error: undefined entity Location: chrome//browser/content/browser.XUL Line Nunber 50, Column 1:
