    Ok so on Tue I was browsing as usual and visited google a few times through the day this is latest Fiirefox version

    Wed afternoon I went to check something out and had this message


    Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

    Firefox detected a potential security threat

    and did not continue to www.google.co.uk because this web site requires a secure connection.
    What can you do about it?
    www.google.co.uk has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

    I have been unable to connect to Google since through Firefox, Edge and Explorere work fine

    I can only assume its something my end ..so any idea >

    Hmmm came back to this as I forgot, for some reason I do not know why every PC in my house had teh same issue none of us (my wife my son and I) could connect to google through firefox

    took a while ... turns out that on firefox I can bypass the problem by not using the inbult certificate I redirected Firefox to look at the MS one instead and I am back on google with Firefox

    Have no idea why though
