Hello, i was unable to access Google and YouTube due to "Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER", i could still access Gmail and drive but those two would not budge, i was still able to access them trough Chrome tough.
I did not have any anti-virus installed, did install malwarebytes for a moment, did a scan and uninstalled it, did not do anything. Turned off windows defender and nothing happened. I did have glasswire installed so uninstalled that as well and nothing happened.
After researching a bit more i found a solution where a guy imported the required certificate from another browser so i did the same. The certificate from both these websites was "DigiCert Global Root G1A" and it was present in Chrome but it was missing in Firefox(In case its relevant), and afterward i got access to both these websites however YouTube stopped working properly. The sidebar on the main site does not show any content( https://prnt.sc/109dtjv ), the comment section wont load and also when i click on my profile it wont load as well ( https://prnt.sc/109dux1 ). As far as i am aware those are the only issues i am facing, the videos load with no problem. Everything is working properly on Chrome so i will assume its not YouTube. I tried starting in incognito mode and safe mode, the issue is still there. So what im currently assuming is that maybe i should not have imported a certificate from another browser but i could be wrong so any help would be appreciated.
TL:DR: Imported certificate from another browser to fix "Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER", now YouTube wont load the sidebar, comment section and myprofile dropdown menu.
