I'm trying to visit https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dict.../hello and have received the message "Secure Connection Failed - An error occurred during a connection to dictionary.cambridge.org. 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."

No error code is given. No Advanced button for bypassing is given.

I've tried to disable everything related with ocsp and it did not work.

I would like to ask whether there is a way to accept the risk and bypass the security check (instead of patching security holes here and there).

Thanks in advance.

There is security software like Avast, Kaspersky, BitDefender and ESET that intercept secure connection certificates and send their own. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-and-other-browsers-cant-load-websites https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/secure-connection-failed-error-message https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/connection-untrusted-error-message Websites don't load - troubleshoot and fix error messages http://kb.mozillazine.org/Error_loading_websites What do the security warning codes mean

Thanks, I'm on Linux (latest Manjaro) with none of these softwares.

And even if I were on Windows with one of these softwares, whether and how it manipulates certificates should not affect the answer to my question related only with Firefox itself, which is whether there is a way to accept the risk and bypass the security check (instead of patching security holes here and there).
