Avast blocking HTTPS traffic from Mozilla Firefox
« on: May 28, 2018, 02:01:53 PM »
Good day I'm having a problem with Avast Free, every time I try to access some website using Mozilla Firefox it returns me the following error message.
NOTE: The problem is only occurring in Mozilla Frefox, in Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge everything is working perfectly.
-------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- -------------

Your connection is not secure

The owner of www.google.com has configured this site incorrectly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to it.

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

To know more…

Report bugs like this to help Mozilla identify and block malicious sites

The www.google.com server uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because the sender's certificate is unknown.
The server may not be sending the appropriate intermediate certificates.
You may need to import an additional root certificate.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER

I would like to know how to proceed to fix this problem without having to DISABLE the Scanning of HTTPS traffic or only solve it even by disabling it ???
Here is an image to better describe the problem:

Hello,
click 'Add Exception' and then 'View'. Is the certificate issued by 'Avast Web/Mail Shield Root'?
Do not confirm the exception.
