Security Breach -- realitychance.com
I got a phishing e-mail on my mail.yahoo.com webmail interface. I deleted it but immediately received the following warning from Bitdefender:
Suspicious connection blocked 8 minutes ago
Feature: Online Threat Prevention
firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an untrusted certificate to realitychance.com. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since untrusted certificates are issued by unrecognized Certificate Authorities.
Kinda weird that an e-mail where I didn't click any link is still able to manipulate my browser like that!

Because you already clicked the email and got infected already. Your going to have to go online to search how to remove this infection.

No infection was detected by Bitdefender or Windows Security. It's the ATTEMPT that concerns me.
If the certificate was not valid, then Firefox wouldn't have loaded the content, either. I'm not sure Bitdefender made a difference in this case.
But why was there a request in the first place? I have a thought:
Does your email immediately show embedded images in a message preview? Images embedded in messages (or other web pages) need to be requested from the server, and can trigger that kind of block.
