"Secure Connection Failed"
Have been getting the "Secure Connection Failed" clicking on google search hits - simple as clicking on the first hit of "wiki wordle" google search would trigger this error.

You can try to disable DNS over HTTPS.
You can check the connection settings.
- Settings -> General -> Network: Connection -> Settings
If you do not need to use a proxy to connect to internet then try to select "No Proxy" if "Use the system proxy settings" or one of the others do not work properly.
See "Firefox connection settings":
Thanks for the quick reply, much appreciated.
I tried changing the Proxy setting to "none" and it helped for a few minutes and then I got the same error.
What I finally did to fix the problem was to remove all my *google* domain's cookies and data. Had to re-login and lost all the auto-fill data; but I can click on the google search hits and without hitting the error.
Must've been something to do with this month's Windows Tuesday Update, my guess.
