Ever since I upgraded to Firefox 63, several trusted websites have stopped loading; instead I get sent to an error page with:

Your connection is not secure

The website tried to negotiate an inadequate level of security.

<www.thestar.com> uses security technology that is outdated and vulnerable to attack. An attacker could easily reveal information which you thought to be safe. The website administrator will need to fix the server first before you can visit the site.

Error code: NS_ERROR_NET_INADEQUATE_SECURITY


This also occurs with https://download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net/pub/firefox/releases/63.0.1/win32/en-US/Firefox%20Installer.exe

Is the problem at my end or theirs? If the former, what do I need to do to return to the behaviour for FF 62?

Last night firefox stopped letting me open any https websites. Chrome doesn't have any problems, just firefox. I have version 63.0.3. I have tried everything that I find on the internet to try. I have windows 10 and am using the windows defender firewall, there are no family settings that are set up. Can anyone help? Below is a screen shot of what I am getting when I try to go to google.com

Hey Guys and Gals,

I have a website problem with Firefox in Windows 10 Home 64bit oem.

I am trying to get to Cyberlink.com and I get error . I also get error if I try using Chrome. Attached at 2 screenshots, 1 FF and 1 Chrome.

I cant access the site using either browser in wiindows 10.

Microsoft Edge accesses it fine thou. Also I have a Linux virtual OS on my system and I can access Cyberlink.com using firefox in it.

I thought maybe it was my system but it also happened on 2 other computer running Windows 7. But to be on safeside I ran Windows 10 troubleshooter and no problems were found. I ran SFC /scannow from Elevated CMD prompt and it found no errors. I than ran a DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth and it found no problems.

Anyone else have an issue accessing Cyberlink.com (cyberlink dot com) just in case links are blocked?

And how would I fix the issue if it is only my system?

Please let me know. Thanks in advance Gren

For years I have used Firefox and been able to login to my NatWest Account - suddenly I am no longer able to have this facility. SECURE CONNECTION FAILED - The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading. The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data couldn't be verified. Please contact the owners of the website to inform them of this problem.

I looked on your help site to see if there were others with this challenge and found some comments from some sanctimonious prat to the effect that this should be remedied by the website owner and that eventually the website would no longer be able to be accessed by any other browser such as Chrome, Edge etc. Great, but I need to see my bank accounts online and rather than change banks, I am changing to Edge so that I can. Eventually NatWest may have to change their security but until then I am going to move away from Firefox, and, I know I only contribute a small amount to your "cause" every year but I shall take that away as well - you are too "holier than thou" in your approach to security and take no thought of how its implications affect the user.

Firefox does not trust DigiCert Global Root CA even though trust is set

I've had trouble accessing websites that use a certificate that's signed with the DigiCert Root CA. As an example, if I open up blog.mozilla.org, I get a SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER.

This is somehow related to my user profile. If I create a new profile, the problem disappears.

I've tried deleting cert*.db in my profile directory to no avail. I checked about:config and I couldn't find any relevant non-default configuration.

To my surprise, if I want to manually set the trust of the certificate in the certificate manager ("Edit Trust"), it tells me that the certificate is trusted. However, if I click on "View Certificate", I get the following error: "Could not verify this certificate because the issuer is unknown."

I don't know much about CAs, but it seems to be surprising how the issuer of a Root CA could be unknown, isn't that the whole point of a Root CA that it does not need to be signed by another certificate?

The more important question: Where in my profile may I have a non-default option that causes Firefox to not trust the DigiCert Global Root CA?
