Google.com is failing (!) on Firefox but not Chrome

2 replies
I'm getting the following message from Firefox; Chrome is fine. Any ideas?


This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to Google, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.

What Should I Do?

If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate.

Technical Details

Google uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown.
The server might not be sending the appropriate intermediate certificates.
An additional root certificate may need to be imported.

      Nope. It was odd; the root certificate appeared invalid for a few hours, and then the problem went away.

      One thought is that Kaspersky demanded a full manual re-install during about the same time. I didn't think the two were connected at the time, but I guess it's conceivable that they affect Firefox's trust levels for root certs?
