Damn you, Firefox!
« on: March 20, 2014, 09:33:00 PM »
OK. So I use multiple browsers on my computer, because I've had problems with every browser at least once and always keep back ups. lol

Recently, Firefox hasn't let me on to hardly any websites. It directs me to a page that looks like this:



So I add the security exception, and make it permanent. But that doesn't work. It takes me to some sort of raw version of FB where I can't click on anything.



I looked around for information, and found that sometimes the internet messes up if you have the wrong date/time listed on your computer. So I made sure to sync my computer clock with the internet, and it STILL gives me this crap.

Looked around some more, and found that this:

Quote
(site name) uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain was provided. (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)

Usually means this:

Quote
You may have enabled SSL scanning in your security software such as ESET or BitDefender. Try to disable this option.

But I have no goddamn idea what the hell that even means! I don't even have those programs on my computer!! I even uninstalled and re-installed FF, and tried deleting the cert8.db file from the folder so FF could create a new one. THAT didn't work either. >:(

(Whoops. This probably should have been in "Computer Problems". Sorry!)

Thanks. Sorry about that. ^^

I'm using Windows 8. But this problem is fairly recent. I never had this problem before.

It looks like something destroyed Firefox's root certificate store somehow?

Only thing I can suggest right off is a complete reinstall, unless there's a root cert install only deal somewhere.

Complete re-install of FF, do you mean?

Also, I can access other websites just fine. (Polyvore, Dark Souls Wiki. Those are only two I tested.) But it also gave me the same message when I tried to access Elliquiy.

SSL-only is not common for forums. Elliquiy and Fetlife are the only two 'small' communities I know of that do it.

Do Chrome and IE do the same thing? That would imply a much worse problem if so. If they work, though, then reinstalling is your best option.

I realize I completely forgot about this thread.

I'm not sure what happened, but the problem fixed itself. I have no idea what happened. I just hope this problem doesn't pop up again, otherwise I'll be asking for help...again. Haha.

But thank you Veks and Oniya for helping me. ^^

I know there are changes when Firefox updates which it does periodically.  I'll lose something on one update and get it back latter.

I did a force-update of people's signatures and all pms. >_>
