Computer not secure error says it's from Mozilla Firefox

Q: Computer not secure error says it's from Mozilla Firefox

I simply don't know where to ask about this. Mozilla message logins and even their answers don't work well.

Two things.

A message appears that says Computer Not Secure even for google
and asks thent o send a message with a button. It still hangs on the next attempt

I ran Mozbackup to save my settings in preparation to reinstall a newer Firefox.

In do this the process of saving things took longer than usual.
I was able to pick out something called telemetry pings being saved as part of the backup
process. What are telemetry pings and are these some form of malware?

Malwarebyes could not be run either since it goes to look for updates.

I have not tried Hijack this yet, but I think I'll run into the same thing.

The whole text of the error message is:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Your connection is not secure

The owner of Google has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

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.

Report errors like this to help Mozilla identify misconfigured sites"

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It has to be bogus. I am dealing with another problem and using a backup disk
so whatever is going on is going on today Saturday Aug13

I will see if I can get a full string location of 'telemetry pings' that are being saved.

Preferred Solution: Computer not secure error says it's from Mozilla Firefox

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have noticed after the recent update to Firefox Version 37.0.1 I am getting this message when trying to log into some sites.
Secure Connection Failed
The connection to web4.secureinternetbank.com was interrupted while the page was loading.
The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.
I also tried restarting the computer. I cleared all history, cookies, and cache as well, there was no change, still having the problem. I tried going through IE and everything worked fine, so the problem seems to be with FF only. I tried on a different laptop in the house using FF, same issue. My fiance logged into the website from his work computer at work with no issues. I did it in safe mode with addons disabled, no change. I also just noticed when trying to go to the bank website, next to the web address I have the Triangle icon with the ! in the center. I clicked on it and can screen shot what it says if you need to see that.
What do I need to do to correct this issue. I have not had any problems in the past, it just seems to be an issue since the current update. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!!

Recently I helped my brother procure a new laptop ? a Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Yoga. Nice machine. He's using it for work (he's a physician) and personal stuff. I've helped him with some configuration tasks, and a member of his work I/T staff has done probably the bulk of whatever configuration it has needed. When doing my bit, I installed Mozilla Firefox, even though his I/T guy had already intalled MS/IE. I installed Firefox really for my own use ? to help me browse the web to find anything he might need for his new laptop; I just wanted to use the browser interface I'm familiar with. I've been using Firefox for some years now, having switched from IE.

Anyway, that's the background. Recently, my brother told me that his I/T guy UNinstalled Firefox because "it has security issues and only MS/IE should be used on his laptop" (that's a rough paraphrase).

I was a bit surprised to hear this since I've been unaware of any noteworthy security issues or concerns with Firefox. On the other hand, I haven't exactly been looking to see if there were/are any. So, I thought I'd ask the experts ? hoping that one or more among them might have and want to share their thoughts on this.

I did try searching this forum for some relevant info, and before coming here, I tried a wider Google search but in both cases didn't really see anything illuminating the answer to my subject question.

Before closing, I should mention that (as one might expect) his new laptop is running Windo... Read more

A:Is Microsoft Internet Explorer more secure than Mozilla Firefox?

A) IE comes with Windows 10 (as does Edge), so the "IT Guy" didn't install it

B) IE is going to be there whether you use another browser or not. Some people consider having an additional browser to be yet another possible attack vector (regardless of it's security record). In other words, If you're stuck with A, then A+B is more insecure than A alone.

C) Edge has proven to be a very secure browser so far, and is just as compliant as other browsers.

D) His work may have security policies about which software can be installed, or should be used. And therefore, you may have inadvertently violated a security policy.

E) Firefox, like all browsers, has had security flaws. Some of them critical. See Security Advisories for Firefox ? Mozilla

I'm not saying that Firefox is any more or less secure than anything else, but regardless it's your brothers computer and he has to use it at his work, so ultimately it's their call what to use.

Yesterday my brother tried to enter the admin page of our modem, using Microsoft Edge could not get into the page while using Mozilla Firefox has succeeded. However, when he started typing username and password, a message appeared saying "This connection is not secure, the entered credentials may be vulnerable". He is however entered the page by entering the data. Turning to different sites, I noticed that this message appears in different sites (not many). It happens with both Edge and Firefox and also with another PC where I use Ubuntu. My question is, could my modem data be stolen? Or if the site where I log in is reliable, can I ignore the message "this connection is not secure"? On Edge, the message does not appear while I log in to the account, but to the left of the page URL.
 
Excuse me for the mistake in the title, I'm not American.

A:Mozilla Firefox message "this connection is not secure"

You will get this message occasionally on web pages that do not use https:// (look at what shows up in your browser's address bar) and that request a username and password if those are requested directly on the webpage presented that is not using https:// protocol.  If your modem-router presents a pop-up login dialog you generally don't get the warning you describe.  For myself, I don't worry about this when dealing with my modem-router since the traffic related to it never exits my local area network.
 
The same applies for other webpages that ask for username and password that don't use https://.   There are a number of sites that were coded ages ago that fall into this category.  There is an online automotive forum that I participate on where I get this warning.
 
Unless someone is actively electronically "watching you" the risk is relatively small of your password falling into the wrong hands.  In any case, if one is still using sites like this and wishes to continue doing so then having a site-specific password (which you should be doing for all websites that require you to login anyway - even though most of us are not perfect in following this practice) is critical since were it to be compromised it could not be used as a possible way to log in to other sites "the hidden observer" might have observed that you log in to.

Firefox has been freezing up on me, and when I close it down, I get a bluescreen error. It also happens a lot of the time when I close Firefox down normally. This was happening before I updated to the latest version of FF. I am running Windows XP, and have recently started using ZoneAlarm and Avast on my system.

I have been using Firefox for quite some time. Not too long ago I went to open the program and received an error message "could not find the Mozilla runtime". I figured I was probably due to upgrade versions anyway, so I simply reinstalled the program. It worked for a few days maybe and then received the same error. This has happened at least three times now. What could be wrong?

Im not sure the two could possibly be related, but it should be noted that this began happening at about the same time as my previous post about my Outlook error message.
 

A:Solved: Mozilla Firefox odd error

From: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1050729

Hello,
Certain Firefox problems can be solved by performing a Clean reinstall. This means you remove Firefox program files and then reinstall Firefox. Please follow these steps:
Note: You might want to print these steps or view them in another browser.
Download the latest Desktop version of Firefox from mozilla.org (or choose the download for your operating system and language from this page) and save the setup file to your computer.
After the download finishes, close all Firefox windows (or open the Firefox menu and click the close button ).
Delete the Firefox installation folder, which is located in one of these locations, by default:
Windows:
C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox

Mac: Delete Firefox from the Applications folder.
Linux: If you installed Firefox with the distro-based package manager, you should use the same way to uninstall it - see Install Firefox on Linux. If you downloaded and installed the binary package from the Firefox download page, simply remove the folder firefox in your home directory.

Now, go ahead and reinstall Firefox:
Double-click the downloaded installation file and go through the steps of the installation wizard.
Once the wizard is finished, choose to directly open Firefox after clicking the Finish button.

More information about reinstalling Firefox can be found here.

Forum, after using my Mozilla Firefox very successfully today for a while. I went off line for a couple of hours and left my pc. When I returned I saw a message from Adobe that they wanted me to download their latest Flash Player. I said OK. While they were downloading that and my Norton was telling me it was safe, they were also simultaneously downloading the McAffee Security Scan Plus, which was automatic. I couldn't stop it. I then removed the McAfee Security Scan Plus (I already have Norton, Malwarebytes, and Superantispyware). I found that I could still get on line through Internet Explorer and Google Chrome, but unable to get on to the MSN site through Mozilla Firefox, which is my "main" browser-although I'm not sure I made Firefox my default browser.

Whenever I click on the Mozilla Firefox icon through my Desktop page to access the net, I get the following error message in bold colors:

Server Error

403--Forbidden: Access is Denied. You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.

What gives? Again, so far I can access IE and Chrome but NOT Firefox. I will say that I was unable to access IE either for a while. I kept say that "http:///" is not a valid e-mail address (for IE). Somehow, I managed to fix that problem. Again, Chrome is working OK. But Firefox has remained inaccessible.

Any advice appreciated. Steve

Hi 4badcomps,
I am Sudipta_S from Dell Social Media and Communities Team.
With regards to your issue, i would recommend you to go ahead and uninstall the Mozilla Firefox from programs and features. To uninstall Mozilla Firefox you have to go to start-control panel-programs and features-click on the one you want to uninstall and restart the computer once it is done. After you restart the computer go to internet explorer and go to Mozilla Firefox Web Browser and download the latest version for Mozilla Firefox and once it is installed you can find the Mozilla Firefox on the all programs list.
Kindly revert for further clarifications,

I have pin-pointed an issue with my computer freezing down to Mozilla Firefox, or at least this is where I see it occur most often (I am a stubborn person and I do not enjoy using different browsers. I am unsure of whether or not this issue is isolated to Mozilla Firefox, and do not plan on changing to Chrome anytime soon, however, I will of course try it out to see if the problem occurs when I am using that as well). I have an NVIDIA GeForce video card that is updated through the "GeForce Experience", my Windows 7 has no updates, and I believe that all of my other drivers are up-to-date. While I am using Mozilla Firefox to type a document in Google Drive, or listen to music on YouTube (often times both) it sometimes will freeze my computer. This problem happened before and after I upgraded my RAM from 4GB to 8GB, however, before the new RAM was added, the entire computer might freeze for a couple of seconds, and then resume normal functions (and it would continually do this until I stopped using it). While it was frozen if I hit the start button, or Start + D/alt+ctrl+del/etc. the commands would follow through after the computer resumed. Now that I have installed the new RAM, whenever this problem occurs it will stay frozen until I do a hard-reboot to my computer. I have been unable to find any definitive causes of this. However, I have noticed that my mouse's curser, when this occurs, will change. For example, if I am typing a document and my curser is in that &qu... Read more

A:ActiveX Error in Mozilla Firefox browser

khaleel516,

You might want to start checking your machine for spyware and these steps are found elsewhere in these forums. This seems like the suspicious behavior of a browser that is infected with a trojan. Typically Firefox does not use ActiveX unless you installed a particular plugin and that goes against installing FF in the first place.

I updated Mozilla Firefox and now when I open it it gives me this Error Message.

Could not initialize the application's security component. The most likely cause is problems with files in your application's profile directory. Please check that this directory has no read/write restrictions and your hard disk is not full or close to full. It is recommended that you exit the application and fix the problem. If you continue to use this session, you might see incorrect application behaviour when accessing security features.

Hi;

Have read a few reviews where suggestion is made that Firebird is a more secure browser than Explore- does anyone have any experience with it?
What's the degree of dificulty in setting-up Firebird and is it worth making the switch?

Any and all replies would be appreciated!

A:Mozilla Firebird more secure than IE Explorer?

The answer is a definite 'possibly'.

IE's massive market share, and its widely known inherent weaknesses (ActiveX etc.), mean that it is targetted by the baddies, (a) because of the said weaknesses and (b) because its not worth making the effort to 'crack' the minority browsers.

If the movement to alternative browsers continues, that situation may change and more attempts will be made against Mozilla, Opera etc. Luckily, when problems are found in Firefox etc., they are usually fixed rather more promptly that MS fixes IE (one site I visit suggests that MS have given up on trying to fix IE, except where the patch is also for the OS. No idea if that's right).

PS. I have Opera and Firefox and actually prefer using Opera so I don't have a lot of experience of setting up Firefox. I know it has lots of 'extras' that can be d/l separately but I haven't used them. The initial D/l and setup of the basic Firefox was easy. because you will have to keep IE for the Updates site, you will need to consider making it as safe as possible;https://netfiles.uiuc.edu/ehowes/www/btw/ie/ie-opts.htm

I just built myself a new workstation computer with MS Win 10 Pro 64-bit, and have installed EAM Pro, WinPatrol PLUS and HMP.A with CryptoGuard as my security setup.
 
I understand that 64-bit Windows is more secure against malware than its 32-bit match, but now I wonder;
 
Are 64-bit editions of Mozilla Browsers more secure than their 32-bit match?
 
Thank you very much in advance!
 
Regards,
midimusicman79

A:Are 64-bit editions of Mozilla Browsers more secure than their 32-bit match?

I do not believe there would be any difference in security between 32 and 64 bit counterparts, unless there are differences in build numbers. If either one has an older version/build number then one can assume it doesn't have the same security fixes. If the same flaw is found in both 32 & 64, but they only fix it in the 32bit version then the software provider can probably be held accountable for any security breaches.

I have 4 browsers on my computer: Internet Explorer 8, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera. I am trying to listen to some MP3 files on a website, and all of the browsers, except for IE 8, told me to download the Realplayer Plugin. So I did, and when I tried to listen to the MP3 file, Realplayer will automatically enable this "Autoupdate Helper" thing and check for updates. So I let it check for updates, but then it'll say "There are no updates..." and just stop there. The file won't play! I click play again, and the same thing happens.

Internet Explorer is the only browser smart enough to open the MP3 files on the web page using Quicktime (the website actually tells you to use Quicktime to open the files) but it doesn't load the Youtube videos that are embedded on the site. There's a X on the top left corner of the section where the video is suppose to be.

Now I'm stuck! I want to view all the contents on one page with one browser! But none of the browsers will actually work properly!

So the main problem is:

1. The MP3 files won't load in Chrome, Firefox, and Opera using Quicktime.

Chrome is the only browser I use frequently, and the others are basically backup. IS THERE ANY SOLUTION TO THIS!?!?!?

Thanks everyone!

I know other users have had issues with this but I didn't know if I could follow the solutions for their problem or not.

(Not sure what information is helpful so I'll start and the top and be brief)
For my job I am required to sometimes go to 'suspect websites' and normally Norton will catch anything before it even has a chance to download. Sadly, two weeks ago I did download a file called Trojan.Gen (or at least that is what Norton called it). Almost immediately Norton caught and removed all threats but I knew I wasn't going to get off that easy.

For a few days everything seemed fine but shortly after I started seeing attack messages from Norton from \device\harddiskvolume1\program files\mozilla firefox\firefox.exe, the IP and web address changes.

I couldn't tell if it was doing anything to my computer and have since been trying to remove it with no luck with Norton. Now, my web pages are being redirected to either a fake search page or a Pay Per Click page, if I click a link in Google.

Norton and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Free are telling me that they are not detecting anything.

I did read the preparation guide, so I hope I have all the information that is needed.

I want to thank you in advance for any help that I can get and I understand that this is a process. I appreciate your time!
-Eve

Hi, I am running Windows 7 Home Premium. Toshiba Laptop.

I recently upgraded to the new version of Mozilla Firefox (23.0.1) and when I tried to go on Facebook it came up with this error:

The connection was reset
The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.


The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
moments.
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
I also noticed that it would not go to www.google.com either.

I have tried clearing the cache, cookies, offline web content, user data and I also checked the box "No Proxy" because I don't have a proxy sever. Still no luck .

I think there might be something wrong with the http or https?

If anyone has any suggestions of how to fix this, I would appreciate it a lot .

A:Mozilla Firefox, error "The connection was reset"

Try
Reset Firefox

Or test with a new user profile:
Use the Profile Manager to create and remove Firefox profiles | Firefox Help

Or export your bookmarks, un-install Firefox, re-install Firefox and import your bookmarks:

I don't know if my problem is Firefox or WordPress but I thought I'd try here first.
I use WordPress to publish articles and usually copy and paste from the finished article in the Articles forum to WordPress but since I reinstalled Win 7 this no longer works as paste is no longer an option when I right click in WordPress, or at least in the particular part that I need it to. I can, however, do it in Internet Explorer, but images aren't copied over, which they used to be. I've tried all the usual things like clearing the cache, but nothing has worked. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Hi,
I am using Win-7 too but I haven't used IE. So my suggestion is to, try another browser for the same purpose and then see the effects (I feel firefox is well suited for the purpose). If you are getting same problems then, you are missing with some features of Win-7 otherwise, it is the website issue.

Hi Guys

I am new to this forum and have limited knowledge of computers.
I was using Firefox version 2 and was very happy until I was requested to download version 3. Now I seem to have endless crashes and keep getting told Firefox has a problem & needs to close. Up to 5 x a day.

This is very frustrating.
This happens with avg, facebook ,all internet functions.

I have spybot running and avg and says there are no problems.

We had a power failure earlier yesterday and when I switched back on Microsoft suggested I check the C drive as there was a problem -but that seems to have sorted itself out.-probably due to not closing down properly.

So can you help me with detailed instructions on how to fix forefox or totally remove it and install from the beginning or is there major problems with that version 3 .1 ?

Thanks
Carol

Make sure you have the latest JavaRuntimeEnvironment installed on your hard drive (you should see a Java Control Panel when you open up the Windows Control Panel).https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/plugins/You can set NoScript to allow scripting by site; if you trust the site, then click on the "S" at the bottom right of the viewing panel, click on "options" and then "general" to add web sites that are to be allowed to execute scripts. Under the "Advanced" tab, see if you have "forbid Java" checked for untrusted sites.Regards,John

Figured I'd give Firefox a try. But seems to slow down my computer too much. Now I can't seem to delete from Add/Remove Programs. HELP!

A:Mozilla Firefox

1. Go to Windows Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs, and if a 'Mozilla Firefox' entry (or similar) exists, select it and click Change/Remove and uninstall it. Note, you can also uninstall Firefox by going to the \Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\uninstall\ directory and running the UinstallFirefox.exe file. Reboot if required.

2. Go to your Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Mozilla directory and delete the entire \Firefox subdirectory and all of its contents. Note that this will delete all of your bookmarks and saved settings. If you want to backup any or all of your current Profile, see the Customizing Firefox section first.

3. Go to your \Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\ directory and delete it and all of its contents.

4. Using a registry cleaner like RegCleaner 4.3, find and remove all Firefox/Mozilla-related entries (usually there are several Mozilla entries to be found) and remove them. Alternatively you can use the Registry Editor (Start>Run>Regedit) and delete the following keys - that is, right click on their name in the left pane of Registry Editor and select Delete:

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FirefoxHTML]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Applications\firefox.exe]

When using Firefox, it works fine, however if I try and open my D: Drive and Recycle Bin, unsure of whether other folders will do this, Firefox automatically closes and anything link with. As I try and reopen the application, it says that it cannot run becuase "js3250.dll" is missing, also stating that re-installing the application may work. So I reinstall but the same thing occurs. I have tried copying "js3250.dll" to a different folder and pasting it back in when it loses this file, however it is not a singular file that is rid of, many .dll files have gone missing to. I have tried SUPERAntispyware to remove some adware, but that also has not solved the problem. So what IS the problem and how do I fix it?

And also when I reinstall, I had copied the whole folder to D: drive, and the same problem occurs, except that no files are lost.

Update: I have just discovered that even if Firefox isn't running, and I open up Recycle Bin or D: drive, the files are still deleted. ie Firefox in drive C: won't run as some files are lost automatically.
