Every time I try to visit any site via firefox I'm getting "This connection is untrusted" error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer

Yes my date and time settings are correct. I tried deleting the cert8.db file like the help page said and it's still doing it. I am technologically challenged so I would really appreciate it if someone would explain the solution to me in terms a rock could understand. Please and thanks.

I am running Firefox 31.0 on a Windows 8.1 o/s. When I attempt to access my email provider in its' "secure" mode, I am advised that the connection is untrustworthy. (Parenthetically, this does not occur on my other two systems running respectively, Windows 7 and Windows XP.) I am asked to provide an authorization for an 'exception' prior to completing the connection. The option of making the exception permanent is NOT available, so I go through this every time I begin a new internet session. I have contacted the email provider and been advised that their digital certificate is valid. So, as I see it there are three problems: (1) if the certificate is valid, as is suggested by the provider, why does Firefox not recognize this, (2) why does the exception window not allow me the option to make the exception status enduring, and (3) why is this problem present only on my Windows 8.1 system?

Hi guys, Well, I think I bring here a very interesting thing for the Mozilla team. I found I have some sort of exploit which takes screen captures whenever I click on any web page. It is specially active whenever you are entering sensitive information like when I log-in onto site accounts, o whenever I check something on the bank. I checked processes using process explorer, and everything points at Mozilla being very active and nothing else. I check the creation of those screen captures and they are always, there. I normally kill every process which is not necessary, and the ones left are just essential. I ran several bootable antivirues like Eset, Kaspersky and Bitdefender and they don't detect anything weird. I removed from a bootable CD all temp files this "thing" creates while making files and take snap of my screen. I goes back on when you are back on Windows. I know that something was going on when on the bank site I had a AVG-antivirus alert saying that an exploit was active and gave me the option to remove it. Other than that, you don't feel a thing. As said, it goes back the alert everytime you visit the bank and some other log-ins, specially while banking. I also disable all Firefox add-ons, as well as the Java on my computer -I believe there's some connection with Java here-. I have the suspicion that it is pdf/exploit coz I saw a glimpse of that name while uninstalling something which I thing was Facemoods. Not too sure how it got there. So there, guys!! I don't know where this "thing" resides, really does -it could be doing more things-, or how to get rid of it. PS: I saw a while ago that I have to mozilla folder hanging from "program files". One is mozilla.bak. I'm digging into this now. Any shed on this, you pros!! I'm not a pro myself, yet I love IT :-) Thanks a bunch in advance to anyone taking the time to solve the one big problem Firefox has and is going to have in the short run. BR F

My browser history is showing multiple inappropriate bing searches through the last month. Some of the search terms are oddly worded. For examples "little girls off swimwear" and "little swimwear cute girl" and little swimwear swim girl" and "4 little girl swimsuit models." The only people that use my computer are me and boyfriend. It certainly wasn't me and he denies it too. Could this be a virus?

I had my usual "several" (probably 3 to 5) Firefox windows/tabs open ... and Microsoft decided to send an update to my Windows 7 box.

I observed Firefox memory use rise rapidly to nearly 800MB ... while netsvcs.exe did approximately the same thing. (This machine has 2GB of RAM.)

Fortunately I had Windows Performance Monitor running, and was able to determine that Windows Update was the competing activity ... and after-the-fact, determined that it had been installing an update to MS Security Essentials (basically a malware signature update - and I have the ID of the specific update, but since it is a security update, I'm hesitant to post that detail in a quasi-public forum). Usually, such updates install quickly and transparently. I also cannot tell, with confidence, whether the memory consumption was from the process of installing the signature - or the process of scanning for malware presence after the sig was installed (although I'd *guess* the latter). I believe both of those aspects execute within netsvcs.exe.

This happened over a period of approximately an hour, during which about all I could do was "sniff around" to identify the culprits; eventually I killed the Firefox process (hoping that its History feature would allow me to return to my open tabs... which was not quite true).

I have reported the event to Microsoft as well, as it could equally be their problem.

Suggestion: Add instrumentation to Firefox to capture data on sudden increases in RAM use - paying particular attention to outside-the-norm values, in relatively short time periods (minutes, not hours) that do not self-resolve ... and consider whether Firefox can be more aggressive at releasing memory it has "claimed," when things go bad.

(Perhaps collect high-level "physical memory available" data when things begin to "go bad," and capture the "footprint" of Firefox memory use... And perhaps add intelligence to log memory allocation failures somewhere. I don't know with certainty if the issue was fragmentation, or the sheer amount requested, but experience and grey-hair lead me to suspect the former. The only Firefox window/tab that I know might have been a high-memory-consumer was a moderate-sized Google Map covering an urban area of several dozen square miles, so it was a complex image.)

Not suggesting this is Firefox's "fault" -- clearly, both processes were "to blame" in the sense that they didn't handle the situation well... but Firefox might handle it better.

I've seen (and reported) quite a series of memory-utilization issues since 28.0 ... perhaps it's time for a "tiger team" to look into these.

AH - one other detail: I keep Firefox pinned to the Windows task bar, and when it starts, it asks me which profile I want to use (of about 5 choices). When restarting Firefox after identifying all the above... I found that it no longer asked me to choose a profile, and the profile it opened was clearly NOT my most-common profile, which includes (e.g.) all my most-common, site-specific login information. I had to mess around for several minutes to get this profile "back" up and running, and I did not make note of what I tried during that effort.

Sometimes I am logged into Hotmail okay, but when I try to send an email, I can't. Other times I CAN send. I am using Firefox but this happens also on Explorer. My date and time are correct. I have run my virus checker; all is okay there. I can access Hotmail on my phone with no problems. I am using Windows 8.1.

There seems to be a resource usage conflict between Firefox and Norton Security (and sometimes other programs). Response time is OK for a while, then suddenly goes down to the point I have to terminate Firefox with the Task Manager (Norton can't be terminated). After termination, I can wait a few seconds for the performance graphs to go to minimum, then restart Firefox and it will be OK again for a while, then the above situation will repeat. One odd thing is that even when response is OK, Task Manager shows Firefox (and plugin-container.exe) doing continuous disk I/Os, even though I'm not doing anything to cause excessive activity, like just looking at text on a page. This doesn't seem normal to me. I'm running with Windows XP 5.1 SP3.

Not every potentially site-breaking addon has a site whitelist or enable/disable list. While some addons exsit for "sandboxing" tabs - it only sandboxes the pages loaded on that tab, not what the browser/addons do to them.
