Hello, everyone. My Firefox (v76.0.1, Windows 10 Pro 1909) can't access the English Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org) and some other sites I need to work with. This started happening suddenly Tuesday night.
This is the error (in English, since my Firefox is in Brazilian Portuguese):
Secure Connection Failed
An error occurred during a connection to en.wikipedia.org. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR
The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.
upload.wikimedia.org gives me the same error. The bizarre thing is that Wikipedias in other languages seem to work normally. Other browsers work fine.
Searching it online, it doesn't seem to be a common problem, and it just started happening by itself. I don't remember installing anything on this PC that day. My only antivirus is Windows Defender. I don't use any VPNs.
Tried all solutions I could find on Google. So far I did:
- Ctrl + F5
- Edited the hosts file
- Deleted cert8.db
- Changed network proxy settings to No proxy and Automatically detect proxy configuration (was in Use system settings)
- Toggled DNS over HTTPS
- Went in about:config and toggled network.dns.disableIPv6
- Started Firefox in Safe Mode
- Backed up the profile folder and just let Firefox create a new one
- Rebooted my router
None of that worked.
I work with site builder platforms and since yesterday the error is starting to creep up in those servers, too.
Any ideas? I just noticed that Wikipedia search is gone from the list of opensearch engines also… This is getting increasingly bizarre…
