All websites are giving me an error. City & state governments and websites I used yesterday, etc.

I don't want to do anything foolish, but this has become tedious.

I have none of the AVs listed in your instructions and Avira never presented problems before.

This is just one example: budget.weho.org uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is only valid for the following names: *.herokuapp.com, herokuapp.com Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN

Hello

I have had this issue for 3 days now. I am unable to access yahoo mail or yahoo in general because I get warning potential risk ahead message. I had to make twitter account to be able to get in touch with yahoo support but they just offered a yahoo link which, of course, I am unable to open because of "potential risk ahead". I tried solutions suggested by people here at mozilla support, like clearing history, cache etc but it didn't work. I also tired accessing yahoo via internet explorer and chrome (installed on my father's laptop, windows 10) Of course same message appears. I am using windows 7 64 bit. I also tried Edge and of course it says yahoo site is not secure. I have never had these kind of problems before. I was always able to access yahoo via FIrefox and other browsers. It's really damn annoying because i see no solution to this damn crap. Also I am unable to upload a 170kb screenshot to show you the issue. Just keeps loading and loading and it doesn't stop. So I guess I will just have to describe it:

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to guce.yahoo.com. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.

What can you do about it?

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

Websites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust this site because it uses a certificate that is not valid for guce.yahoo.com. The certificate is only valid for *.amz-aws.jp. Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN

https://guce.yahoo.com/consent?gcrumb=gscOGxw&trapType=login&done=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.yahoo.com%2F&src= Unable to communicate securely with peer: requested domain name does not match the server’s certificate. HTTP Strict Transport Security: false HTTP Public Key Pinning: false

Running FF 59 on Mac OS 10.13.3. Cannot access internal Connection to ESC Vsphere client Bitdefender says website is safe, colleague runs same Mac OS, same FF at the desk next to me.... connection works. Adding Security Exception does not work, always shows:

ops-vcsa70.ops.oce.net uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. The server might not be sending the appropriate intermediate certificates. An additional root certificate may need to be imported. Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER

Connecting to the same server from my Windows Virtual Machine with FF 59 works. Just this instance of FF does not make the connection possible. Deleted FF, clean new install. Same issue

I'm not able to access certain sites do to missing "Add Exception" button. I have tried all the suggestions, like modifying about:config, resetting firefox completely, and deleting appData.

1) Other browsers work fine 2) The corporate VPN or security software is probably creating certificate problems. Asking them to change is not an option 3) I don't care if the site is well-maintained or not, I need to access it. 4) I don't plan on logging into any websites or sharing any data. 5) If Firefox really can't do this, then I need to use a different browser

I don't care about security here. The sites I want to access are just public pictures and videos, and I don't plan on logging in.

An example is embedded videos from Twitter.com. I'm not able to access them.


Any help?

Hello!

My partner is unable to access the following secure site via Firefox 55.0.3: https://mdlandrec.net/main/

He receives the error message: "Secure Connection Failed. The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading." (Full error message screen shot attached.)

Meanwhile, I am able to access the site with no problem, using the same version.

The error message suggests I contact the site owners, which is not possible. The site is a state government site and the owners are not responsive. I cannot wait for this problem to resolve itself. Is there any way to bypass this security so that my partner's Firefox can access the site?

Thank you! BenGW

Hi,

i have a problem with certificates for local domains. An app for compiling Sass files (CodeKit) provides a local server on the Mac. The app creates a root certificate (authority certificate) which I have imported into Firefox (Prefs -> Privacy & Security -> View Certificates -> Authorities -> Import).

When I now call the URL generated by the app in Firefox (https://marios-imac.local:5757/) I get the error message "SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN" and "The certificate is only valid for the following names:" But this list shows the correct URL! I have attached two screenshots.

Calling the TLS URL in Safari, Chrome and Opera works without any error message!

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong? I have already deleted Firefox completely and created a new user account (for Firefox and in Mac OS X), but nothing has helped.

So basically, Iv been trying to access steam & thesimsresource but weirdly an error message comes up It looks like this:

Unable to connect

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at www.thesimsresource.com.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Im really confused as this has never happened before. If you have an answer to my problem please explain in a simple way as all this is extremely complicated.

I run https://www usufans.com and recently I've been getting complaints from some of my Firefox users that they are getting Secure Connection Failed errors. The errors are random and don't seem to be affecting everyone. I am able to replicate it on my machine but it's not everytime I load a page. Sometimes a page will load and sometimes it won't. I've tried in Firefox 57 and 58 both and neither of those versions have the issue at all. As soon as Firefox updates to the latest version the problem immediately comes back. The SSL certificate is from my host and every SSL test I try shows that it's installed properly. The problem doesn't exist in Chrome, IE, or Edge and it doesn't show up in earlier versions of Firefox. It looks like there have been similar issues in the past but none of the solutions have worked. Any ideas?

Mozilla allows me to add an exception, and the window that comes up has an option to make the exception permanent, but it wont allow me to check the box to make it permanent. it would make things easier if i could make the exception permanent. how do i make this certificate a permanent exception? thank you for your time in this matter, and have a great day!

Firefox uses a Master password to protect Certificates stored in Firefox's separate-from-Windows Certificate store. UNlike the (more security-flexibly configurable) Windows Certificate store, Firefox either doesn't protect certificates at all (no Master password) or only 'protects' the whole of the imported certificates by requiring a Master Password (wrongly prompted right at Firefox start time) for the whole of a LastPass user session. In short, if Firefox is running, the certificates (and other things 'protected' by the Firefox Master password) are not well protected.

In contrast, Certificates stored in the Windows Certificate store may be individually configured with various levels of security (no password, prompt on each use, or prompt-with-certificate-specific-password on each use).

Firefox must offer equally flexible security levels for Certificates.
