I upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1 last night. I tried connecting to facebook a few hours ago and find I can't get in. The error is, "This Connection is Untrusted", with, "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".
I've browsed the help forums, and have learned this is because I have Family Safety active and am trying to access the accounts on a "Child" account. One suggested fix is to disable Family Safety; that is not an option. I absolutely must have Family Safety for my laptop.
This thread proves greatly helpful: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1075301. I did the first answer philipp suggested, "Trust this CA to identify web sites", and I have confirmed this change.
Now whenever I try to access Facebook, Google, Yahoo, Youtube, etc., I get this:
An error occurred during a connection to www.yahoo.com. Peer's certificate has an invalid signature. (Error code: sec_error_bad_signature)
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.
I've ran out of ideas. I went back to the helpful thread and tried the next thing philipp suggested: going to the webpage, "https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2965142", and then clicking the, "known issues for Mozilla Firefox users" link. The problem with that is the instructions seem to be written for a touchscreen enabled device; I don't have a touchscreen device, I have a gaming laptop with no touchscreen.
I know it's a lot of information, but I would really appreciate anyone's help in my struggle to be able to access those sites without asking my mom to get on her administrator account when I want to access those websites.
