firefox blocked my auto payment site, had to use Chrome to pay my bill!!
I wanted to pay a bill and got this:
Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to mysubarumotorsfinance.com. Peer’s Certificate has been revoked. Error code: SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE
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.
Sure!!, let me call them and tell them to fix their certificate! Luckily I have Chrome, and I used Chrome with no problem to pay my damn bill!
In addition to this stupidity, every single time I log onto a website I have to turn off the tracking shield because if I don't, the website does not work. I disabled this in settings, but it just comes right back again. I don't care about a site on which I have to pay a bill tracking me or not. Firefox is becoming so unusable, I may as well just use Chrome from now on. What the hell happened to the browser I have been using for almost two decades???

You can customize tracking protection to reduce or disable blocking: Enhanced Tracking Protection in Firefox for desktop.
The SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE code indicates that the issuer of the certificate has revoked it. Sometimes this is due to some kind of breach, but more often seems due to non-payment of fees. The issue is real and not an error by Firefox as you can confirm on this test site: https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=mysubarumotorsfinance.com
Firefox is the last browser that does a real-time revocation check; the others download a list from time to time. This makes Firefox the canary in the coal mine for sites that missed a renewal or have some other issue, since other browsers usually won't start issuing an error for several more days. Sucks for us, but at least you know what happened.
Interestingly, when I used your link just now, the site redirected successfully to https://subarumotorsfinance.com/home. Is that the site you got in Chrome, too? Maybe update your bookmark.
