Warning: probable security risk: Firefox has detected a potential security threat and has not proceeded towards https://website.com
I own a website, let's say "website.com"
I transferred it from one host provider to another. "website.com" is now hosted by the new host provider, I know the transfer is now finished.
But when I browse the website and go to the URL website.com, I have this error message:
Warning: probable security risk Firefox has detected a potential security threat and has not proceeded towards If you access this site, attackers could steal information such as passwords, e-mails or credit card details. To find out more... Back (recommended) Advanced...
1/ Is it an SSL certificate error message?
2/ Should I solve this issue with my new host provider? What should I ask them?
Thanks a lot,

Did you click the Advanced button for more detail ? Do you have a new certificate for this host ?
You can reload webpage(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.
- hold down the Shift key and left-click the Reload button
- press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
- press "Command + Shift + R" (Mac)
You can remove all data stored in Firefox for a specific domain via "Forget About This Site" in the right-click context menu of an history entry ("History -> Show All History" or "View -> Sidebar -> History").
Using "Forget About This Site" will remove all data stored in Firefox for this domain like history and cookies and passwords and exceptions and cache, so be cautious. If you have a password or other data for that domain that you do not want to lose, make sure to backup this data or make a note.
You can't recover from this 'forget' unless you have a backup of involved files.
If you revisit a 'forgotten' website, data for that website will be saved once again.
