I got a new windows10 laptop recently, installed firefox, and now firefox is saying "This Connection is Untrusted" with many sites, even the searchbar. I've noticed that if i google something straight from the searchbar it'll tell me "untrusted connection"; however if i were to remove the s from "https" then i'll be able to get to the site. Example: i googled 'hello', the address that turned up untrusted connection was "https://www.google.com/search?q=hello&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8", upon removing the s, i could get to the site, the site address became "https://www.google.com.sg/search?q=hello&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&safe=active&gws_rd=cr,ssl&ei=5u3TVevvNsnk0gSEiZ7QDg&safe=active". Yes, my date and time is set correctly. I am using AVG antivirus on Asus Zenbook. I've tried many solutions in the many forums including this support forum. Please help, it's really annoying me.
Here's the full details of "untrusted connection":
You have asked Firefox to connect securely to www.youtube.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."
