How to Fix Secure Connection Failed Error in Mozilla Firefox (No time se...

Maybe.

To Firefox users   Newer versions of Firefox are borked and now along with everything else, it now sucks.




Btw, I don't know if this works yet or not, since I'm now back on my desktop with my older reliable version of Firefox, etc...

I had hurt my knee a couple of weeks ago, so I couldn't go upstairs to work on my desktop computer.

So, I had to use my laptop which was brought downstairs.  When on my laptop the other day, I kept getting the below error when trying to read Daily Messenger's Wordpress blog.

https://thedailymessenger.wordpress.com/

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to thedailymessenger.wordpress.com. The OCSP response contains out-of-date information. (Error code: sec_error_ocsp_old_response)

    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.

It's not just that site. Even wikipedia is blocked and several others that I can't remember.  Thankfully, his blogpost blogs still work on Firefox 39.  I then checked Firefox and made the discovery that it was updated.  The constant updates on this and this forces everything else to have to be updated, when stuff was working fine before.  It's so unnecessary all this damn constant updating.

So my my husband (WITHOUT my permission) allowed the Firefox 5.0 to be upgraded all the way to Firefox 39 on MY laptop computer.  I had a fit of course.  That's why I don't like others using my stuff.  Told him he needs to get his own computer fixed.  It's very handy because we each have our own separate online jobs and such, so we can work independently without interruption.

So if this solution doesn't work, I'm going to have to do an uninstall and find an older version.  I have Firefox 3.16 on my current desktop here and TURNED OFF updates.  Firefox 5 was on the laptop, which worked fine.

Firefox used to be good.  Not anymore.  Now, like everything else, it's now SHIT.  The whole internet is borked anymore.  All this update this, update that, give a penny here, javascript and flash us to death anymore.

If it ain't broke, they'll fix it until it is.

YAY!  We borked it now!

You web developers suck and have RUINED the internet.

Edit:  Now Google Chrome has started this damn shit.  Since updates can not be turned off in Chrome, I will be unstalling this shit browser too.
