  • Mozilla stops rollout of its latest version of Firefox, version 65

    Posted on February 2nd, 2019 at 18:22 admin Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Lawrence Abrams on BleepingComputer says

    Mozilla has halted the automatic updates to Firefox 65 as users are unable to browse web sites due to certificate errors. These errors are being caused by conflicts between various antivirus program’s HTTPS scanning and Firefox 65.

    Here in the browsers forum we have confirmation from Charlie and others.

    Abrams goes on to say:

    If you have upgraded to Firefox 65 and are seeing errors when browsing the web that state the “Connection is not secure”, then you are most likely affected by this bug and seeing a conflict between the browser and your antivirus software.

    And offers two workarounds. Various antivirus manufacturers are also distributing a bypass.
