with 2 near identical laptop notebooks, one accesses major websites OK but the other blocks websites with msg: "Your connection is not secure. The owner of www.login.live.com has configured their website incorrectly." This even happens w/ www.mozilla.org!. I am desperate for a solution because I need the laptop to finish a report! NOTE: both laptops worked correctly yesterday.

Shortly after posting my request for help and seeing no response; I uninstalled Firefox and did a NEW download and install that was successful and solved my access problem.

There is security software like Avast and Kaspersky and BitDefender and ESET that intercepts secure connections and sends their own certificate or that incorporates special web shielding features that can block content.

If you can't inspect the certificate via Advanced (I Understand the Risks) then try this:

Open the "Add Security Exception" window by pasting this chrome URL in the Firefox location/address bar and check the certificate:

  • chrome://pippki/content/exceptionDialog.xul

In the location field of this window type or paste the URL of the website with the https:// protocol prefix (https://xxx.xxx).

  • retrieve the certificate via the "Get certificate" button
  • click the "View..." button to inspect the certificate in the Certificate Viewer

You can inspect details like the issuer and the certificate chain in the Details tab of the Certificate Viewer. Check who is the issuer of the certificate. If necessary then please attach a screenshot that shows the Certificate Viewer with the issuer.
