For the time being, distribution of Firefox 65 has been stopped due to this bug related to certificate errors: 1523701 - SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER since updating to Firefox 65. Users are getting the error, "Your Connection is not secure", further indicating that that there is an issue with the HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) of the site. According to the referenced bug report it is caused by the web protection modules in antivirus software.

Hi Lukas, our users updating to Firefox 65 with Avast & AVG installed have been encountering this error with regularity since we launched on Tuesday. We've temporarily halted all automatic updates on Windows to avoid further exacerbating the issue. Have you gotten reports on your end and if so, do you have any ideas what might be happening from your perspective?

 

Thanks!

 

Hi Ryan, Firefox HTTPS filtering will be completely disabled by the new virus engine update (eta 2 hours from now) in avast/avg products. We are working on the proper fix. Thnx, David
