Some problems occur when your Internet security program was set to trust the previous version of Firefox, but no longer recognizes your updated version as trusted. Now how to fix the problem: To allow Firefox to connect to the Internet again;
- Make sure your Internet security software is up-to-date (i.e. you are running the latest version).
- Remove Firefox from your program's list of trusted or recognized programs. For detailed instructions, see
That was what I was looking for : There is security software like Avast/AVG, Kaspersky, BitDefender and ESET that intercept secure connections and send their own certificate.
Hi once more,
My pc was telling me that I had a problem with Hola. So I reinstalled Hola but I subsequently uninstalled it.
HI, it is something in Avast that is blocking Firefox. It was fixed on the 28th but seems it is back again.
But yes Hola may cause issues. But start where we know there is and has been issues many times before.
Hi, I tried the changes to Avast, but that did not work I have now uninstalled Avast, refreshed Firefox, without success
Firefox is still not working.
Start your Computer in safe mode with network support. Then start Firefox. Try Secure websites like Mozilla. Is the problem still there?

Hi, I have tried 3 time to start pc in Safe Mode with network (option 5). Each time I do this the pc starts in safe mode but with no Internet connection. I am still unable to load any Web sites from Firefox
Are you using WiFi? Its drivers may not be loading in safe mode. Can you use a cable to your modem?
As a test, disable your protection programs.
