Secure connection failed on all https sites?

On all HTTPS sites, I get this message...

The secure connection failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.adobe.com. (or whatever site... lynda.com, bill pay sites, banks, etc...)

The OCSP server has encountered an internal error.

(Error code: sec_error_ocsp_server_error)

 The page you are trying to view can not be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
 Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem. Alternatively, use the command found in the help menu to report this broken site.

This happens since I updated from FF6 on all sites that use the protocol https for logging under... I contacted most of the sites and they say that's not them... they are all sites that I have seen in the past and regularly use... now since I updated to FF, they no longer work and I had to use another browser to access these sites... it's a royal pain!

Thank you very much! Who has resolved, but is it safe to leave it off?

Thanks again!

Happy Thanksgiving!

  • I have a problem of "Secure connection failed", access to an HTTPS site.

    I have a problem of "Secure connection failed", access to an HTTPS site. It is of this type:

    Your certificate contains the same serial number for another certificate issued by the certification authority. Please get a new certificate containing a unique serial number.

    (Error code: sec_error_reused_issuer_and_serial)

    OK, I have not read the support article carefully enough - it even says that this dialogue cannot be exceeded by adding an exception.
    you are most likely right that this problem arises because the same cert is used for different sites. this support article describes a work around, but it is probable, not applicable to your situation, since you would also have to remove the certification authority and which would create all sorts of problems as your production site will tend to choose an a valid CA certificate.

    Please contact your IT department or the problem of certificate on two different servers or to allow you to run a version of portable firefox where you can mess with the certificate store and the authorities of trust in order to access the test server.

  • "Secure connection failed" that occur on the growth of number of sites, v40.0.2

    I'm on a Mac network and many of us become "secure connection failed: the page you are you are trying to view are not visible because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified." This number of sites displaying this error increases. It was just Wikipedia.org at the beginning, but now I can't access Mozilla.org! I have tried virtually all solutions that have worked for others, without success, including:

    -Uninstall of Firefox and install the 40.0.2 version

    -setting 'security.tls.version.fallback - limit' 0 or 1

    -setting in "security.tls.version.max" to 0 or 1

    -disable the 'security.ssl3.dhe_rsa_aes_128_sha' and 'security.ssl3.dhe_rsa_aes_256_sha '.

    -Uninstall and creating a profile

    -Check without plugins or add-ons are causing the problem

    -Refreshing Firefox

    And probably others I don't remember. I wish I could put more details browser, but can't because I can't get on Mozilla with Firefox. Please help and thank you very much!

    Which site gives you inappropriate alert rescue - the main www (https://www.mozilla.org/) or this support site? Or is this only a problem when you use a partial domain that redirects, such as https://mozilla.org/?

    Both this site and the www site use TLS 1.2, so Firefox does not need to return to TLS 1.0 in both cases. In addition, Firefox should have no problems connecting to Wikipedia.

    It seems that you do not have a direct connection, there is a proxy server or something else between you and the site or malware.

    If it's common throughout your network, it might be a common agent or something wrong with the router/firewall.

    There are security software such as Avast and Kaspersky that intercepts secure connections and sends its own certificate.

    If you cannot inspect the certificate by "I understand the risks", then try this:

    Open the "Add Security Exception" this URL chrome by pasting into the address bar of Firefox and check the certificate:

    • chrome://pippki/content/exceptionDialog.XUL

    In the field of location of this window, type or paste the URL of the Web site.

    That looks like a problem with bad sniffing user agent.

    It works for me if I change date 20100101 in Gecko/20100101 in on user agent (same Gecko/20100102 works, only Gecko/20100101 does not work).

    The server could be hacked to target only a Firefox user agent.

    Sorry for the delay, long day away.

    With this many cross-browser issues, can you confirm that your system clock date, time, and time zone are all correct? SSL validity checks are time sensitive.

    If you see a globe, I think that you are unable to use an HTTPS address. Usually Firefox displays a padlock or a "!" icon in the shape of triangle on a HTTPS address depending on whether the certificate withdraws or has a problem.

    Is there a code in parentheses, separated by underscores in the error page? If so, could you copy and paste this code.

  • Secure connection failed Firefox 33.0.2 (certificate Secure Connection failed sender is invalid.) (Code d'erreur: sec_error_ca_cert_invalid))

    Updated to 33.0.2 and now on some self-signed sites that use my internal network servers, I get the Secure Connection failed Firefox 33.0.2 (certificate Secure Connection failed sender is invalid.) Error code: sec_error_ca_cert_invalid). Sites are used to administer my internal servers and have current certificates. Is there a work around or fix for this problem?

    Hello bpainter77, I think that this issue will be addressed in a next update - set an exception for pages with a sec_error_ca_cert_invalid error can work with the beta version of firefox 34 already: http://www.mozilla.org/firefox/beta/

    The only reason I installed it is because a University site, I need to use requires Firefox (my IE 10 is not compatible apparently). This is the MOST useless browser I've ever tried! I mean common SERIOUSLY? I do not have the settings even modified, installed add ons, or anything like that! So what is the point of this browser, if you need to be a computer WHIZZ to make repairs before you can use? OMW!

    I already reinstalled the damn thing but still useless...

  • All https sites are with sec_error_untrusted_issuer and watch a specific certificate

    All https sites I visit will get "this connection is untrusted". I tried reinstalling (entirely) firefox and also uninstalled all kinds of virus software (I had Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10). Tried to clean the cache, cookies, history, and all temporary files disk cleanup. Also tried the file cert8.db regeneration and reset profile. Nothing seems to work, but on other browsers, pages Web (facebook, youtube, banks) work very well. What would be the next step to get closer to the solution. (Keeping in mind a constant restart was part of the process).

      • Also when I "Add Exception" and obtain the certificate, then it shows "thawte, Inc." on each site.

    For some reason any using CCleaner to clean my computer fixed the issue... While I used the disk cleanup to clean all my files, but if anyone has the same problem, then CCleaner would be an option to try.

    This indicates that the site is by default an obsolete encryption encryption algorithm that is vulnerable to the attack of 'Blocking' which was in the news earlier this year.

    You can turn off these old present in Firefox to try to force the site to his game. Here's how:

    (1) in a new tab, type or paste Subject: config in the address bar and press ENTER. Click on the button promising to be careful.

    (2) in the search above the list box, type or paste dhe and make a pause so that the list is filtered

    (3) double-click the preference security.ssl3.dhe_rsa_aes_128_sha to true to false (disable Firefox to use this encryption)

    (4) double click on the security.ssl3.dhe_rsa_aes_256_sha preference from true to false (disable Firefox to use this encryption)

    Then try your payment site. Any improvement?

    The FF for office forum solved a similar problem for me making me enter: config and add the site to security.tls.insecure_fallback_hosts as an exception.

    After typing Subject: config you press the Go button on the keyboard (or the symbol to Enter/Return). To display a screen listing preferences from accesssibility.accessfu.activate.

    Type the search in the upper right corner line and type or paste tls and then pause while the list is filtered.

    If you scroll down, you should find and be able tap tap security.tls.insecure_fallback_hosts , then, in a second time, in the empty space below to enter your host name.
