Trying to help a mate who is getting this response when trying to connect to many web-sites, including his own.....

"This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect
securely to www.?????????, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.
Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified

What Should I Do?
If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue."

This seems to have started since he recently updated to version 14.0.1.

He is going to reload this version again, and I have suggested going back to a previous version if he has no luck.

Any idea what is causing this. He is on Windows XP.

It appears a reload has cleared this problem...so I post this to avoid anyone wasting time on it.
