My antivirus is blocking this connection from Firefox because of an non-matching certificate. I use Bitdefender Security Suite.

"firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an unmatching security certificate to We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since the used certificate was issued for a different web address than the targeted one."

This happens when I first fire up Firefox but not every time.

That's all I can tell you. I can unblock it if necessary. Just thought Mozilla would want to know.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?
