Hello,
Since several months i have a problem on firefox with all the website related to Google. Sometimes it works, sometimes no. its very random. I have already reinstall firefox and avast several times to try to fix the problem.

This morning, i realised that in Avast, when i turn off the option "autoriser l'analyse HTTPS", everything seems to be good.
Is it an important option?

Is there a way to keep this option and not having problem with google on firefox?
Thank you.

There isn't much to work with and the fact that it isn't consistent doesn't help (point to one thing only).

I don't have any issues with the "allow HTTPS scanning" (a default setting) and I use Firefox 113.0.1 version as my default browser (haven't yet updated to 113.0.2).

Firefox also has settings relating to HTTPS and also Tracking, see attached images of my settings.

They are different:
The one (in firefox) is enable Strict HTTPS connections, so some sites that don't support HTTPS would result in a warning in Firefox.  Why I asked about screenshots.

The one in Avast is to scan HTTPS sites/links/connections.  Or you would be leaving a gaping hole in your security, this is an Avast default setting and one which given the majority of sites support HTTPS connections, you should leave that setting in Avasts Web Shield settings.
