I am asking this as a last attempt before giving uo on Firefox completely.

I cannot access the "Player" Page of the UK National Lottery Web Site if using Firefox. This is the page : https://www.national-lottery.co.uk/player/p/home.ftl

I get this error message : "SECURE CONNECTION FAILED. An error occurred during a connection to www.national-lottery.co.uk. PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR"

Windows 8.1, running Firefox 75.0, with Avast 20.2.2041 Anti Virus.

This used to work fine, the was saved as a Bookmark. I can open the Web Page fromthe same computer if I use google Chrome Browser, without any other intervention.

After extensively researching various Help Topics on Firefox here's what I've tried :

Turning OFF Avast Anti-Virus protection - makes no differece. Clearing Firefox History, Cache, and Cookies - makes no difference. Refreshing Firefox - makes no difference.

The other thing I have noticed is that the Home Page of the National Lottery Web Site - https://www.national-lottery.co.uk/ WILL load, but only as a page Text with lots of Links.

Any ideas ?

Firefox will no longer open Google without a "This Connection is Untrusted" error, and no option to get a temporary certificate is available.

This problem popped up for the first time a few months ago. but I was able to work around it by by clicking on "I understand the risks" on the "This Connection Is Untrusted" warning page, and then by adding a security exception. That fix would work for random lengths of time... sometimes for days, sometimes for minutes. Now, after updating to the latest version of Firefox, I get the same security warning but the option to click "I Understand the Risks" is gone. I get this error message on the technical details page: (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer

I have done everything listed here many, many times: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/connection-untrusted-error-message I mean everything. Delete cert.db, start in safe mode, empty cache, delete and reinstall.... Nothing works.

Your help would be greatly appreciated!

I couldn't find a solution on this support forum and I apologise if the issue has been addressed before.

I seek to browse in complete privacy/incognito to avoid websites being able to detect my identity.

I use a VPN, my WIN10 location services are all set to OFF, Firefox cookies are not allowed for the relevant websites, I use Firefox private browsing, when I open the relevant websites I make sure that I don't have any other windows/tabs open, GPS is not installed on my laptop...

Yet, websites can still identify me!

Can you recommend a check list of settings to ensure that I don't get identified by websites?

I've done -both- selecting & blocking the domain name of Google for prefs, etc from it's website AND using the Firefox security options page and typing in Google's domain name then selecting it to remove its cookies. But every time I check the "Show Cookies" tab, google is STILL there in the cookie list even after I've done all this stuff. What must I do, what secret domain name must I type to ensure Google doesn't track me?

I'm already using DuckDuckGo as my sole search engine so there is NO reason why google should be able to attach cookies to me as I am NOT USING GOOGLE. Please help.

Camera not authorized. Please check your media permissions settings.

There have been times where it let me through and I was able to test it but more often it refuses. Also have the same problem

using Facebook. When I switch over to Chrome browser I don't have any problems which leads me to believe the problem is with

Firefox. I've seen other people mentioning this but I didn't see any resolutions

You are using a lot of google code and that is scary. The INET database is used and is the only allowed entries to be viewed now., NO THANK YOU MOTHER MAY I. "Black" sites are UNKNOWN sites. That is what BLACK means. Black matter, black energy, black sites. Unknown information. Not the Evil Empire.

10.224.219.149 is a music box that flak format files are stored and plays music. It is controlled mostly through the 'part of the package B2 as a web interface. The unit goes on line and the number it has is a static number. We use those static net numbers to access our unit. The Brennan B2 is sold with the site control. You ignore business needs and ability. The INET is a named list not a number list. It is useful if someone registers a name like https://FireFox.com and if someone enters FireFox they get the traffic not you. Try Utube.com the real one is youtube.com lots of people get trapped. So it is a bad site. Someone stole the lookalike name. Numbers are subnets of other numbers that likely have names. Let me have access or inform me how to get to my site. We need a getaround.

I have set Firefox v48.0 to not record history in order to effectively achieve private browsing and thus enhance privacy. The only thing that now appears in History is a "moz-extension" in the following format: moz-extension://f111111b1-1111-1fae-1111-ef11111d11be/background.html. I've replaced each of the figures by a "1" so as to simply illustrate the structure. I don't know and have not been able to find out just what the moz-extension is and what purpose it serves here. Thanks heaps.

Hi, from few days my Firefox installation do not work as expected. ALL exclusion lists (psw, pop-up ...) are cleaned when I close Firefox. I've read hundreds of article to try to fix this without success. I've also tried to unistall and install a new version of firefox without having any positive results. I don't have the cronology clean active and there is not an justification for this big issue.

Have someone had the same issue and have resolved this?

Thanks for your help

I have McAfee Internet Security with a Site Advisor that works when it wants to. When I start my browser it sometimes isn't there and it isn't until I restart my computer it makes an appearance. The same problem is true for the green ticks that show whether it's safe to browse. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and Site Advisor but neither have worked for me, so I am left with restarting my computer every time I turn it on to get a working Site Advisor. I am using Windows 7 64 bit if that helps so if anyone can fix this perplexing issue for me once and for all I will be forever grateful.

Firefox automatically upgraded itself to version 41 and now the Trusteer Rapport Endpoint Protection icon is no longer shown to the right of the address bar. It is still there and working in Internet Explorer. The same situation is happening on 2 PCs, both Windows 7 64 bit.

Surely Trusteer Rapport is a widely used feature - one would have thought a new release of Firefox would have been tested to work with it.
