Inability to connect to certain websites, Youtube, Gmail etc.
One part of the article I read says the connection issue is due to HTTP, another part of the Article says it is Googles fault due to their HSTS security policy. I have to say Poppycock. I can successfully login to my Gmail on my tablet I just cannot connect to it with my laptop. Firefox itself is refusing to allow the connection. Unfortunately it happens more often than you'd expect. I am in no way or by any means capable of computer repair, but I seem to enjoy tormenting myself with constantly taking apart and rebuildingthis laptop, Took me almost 3 months to finally find out how to stop Firefox address URL bar from highjacking the search bar with that really annoying awesomebar in about:config. But something just seems wrong with the browser on the laptop not being able to connect, but there is no issue with the tablet.
Thank you for any advice or solution that could help me with this. Ive thought about the firefox refresh reset option instead of uninstall reinstall, but if there is a better solution

Could you copy/paste the text of the error page you're getting. If there is an Advanced button, please also copy/paste the error code (typically in ALL_CAPS). Thanks.
And to address one seemingly common problem, set Firefox to not use any system-defined proxy server. Here are the steps:
Open the Settings page. Either:
- "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Settings (previously "Options")
- Type or paste about:preferences into the address bar and press Enter/Return to load it
In the search box at the top of the page, type proxy and Firefox should filter to the "Settings" button, which you can click.
Change to "No proxy" and OK the change at the bottom of the dialog.
