There are several sites, on what seems to be an ever growing list, on multiple computers using Firefox ranging from versions 37.0.2 to the latest version that are getting a "Connection reset". (The different versions were used as part of the tests to find if the problem was related to a specific version of Firefox)
I initially thought the problem was related solely to the http vs https access but, whilst trying to access this support site, I found that both the http and https variants returned the same error.
For example, if I go to http://www.staticice.com.au I will get a Connection reset error. If I go to https://www.staticice.com.au the site loads and works fine. The same for http://www.dvdfab.cn and https://www.dvdfab.cn.
What is even more interesting (at least to me), is that if I connect via my VPN, the http variant will load and work fine.
I've worked though the solutions described in the below post but they have not resolved the issue for me.
There is nothing in my Windows firewall that I've added. I've tried with an empty hosts file, and I've even uninstalled and reinstalled firefox.
