My crime was to upgrade to Seamonkey 2.49.4.

Now I can't connect to my usual news, banking, and other webpages. The "Secure Connecion Failed" page is especially bad because seamonkey will refuse to let me get the webpage at all (I'm forced to use Google Chrome...bleh....). I've tried to turn off all of the options I can find, but these messages still persist. What remedies do you suggest I can do to get around these problems? Otherwise, Seamonkey is unusable for me.

FYI - "Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem." is insulting. I promise you that the only answer I ever get from website owners about problems is to use a supported browser like Microsoft's Internet Explorer or Edge. This answer doesn't do anything to let me use seamonkey/firefox on their site, and it just reinforces that there is nothing I can do since the website owners aren't about to change their operations so I can use seamonkey.

These sites worked just fine on the previous version of seamonkey....in fact, I don't understand why this latest seamonkey reset some of my settings instead of importing them from the previous version of seamonkey. Aren't all of the seamonkey versions upwards compatible. If not, why not?

Help!

I'm getting really tired of these messages:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to http://www.mycutx.com.

Peer reports incompatible or unsupported protocol version.

Error code: <a id="errorCode" title="SSL_ERROR_PROTOCOL_VERSION_ALERT">SSL_ERROR_PROTOCOL_VERSION_ALERT</a>

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.



and

This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked SeaMonkey to connect securely to abcnews.go.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally, when you try to connect securely, websites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this website's identity can't be verified.
What Should I Do?

If you usually connect to this website without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the website, and you shouldn't continue.
Technical Details
I Understand the Risks

If you understand what's going on, you can tell SeaMonkey to start trusting this website's identification. Even if you trust the website, this error could mean that someone is tampering with your connection.

Don't add an exception unless you know there's a good reason why this website doesn't use trusted identification.

    :-k Personally, I have NO problem or error visiting the page you mention:

    Do you use any of these antivirus programs?
    -- Avast/AVG, Kaspersky, BitDefender or ESET

I can't access that website using SM (2.49.4 and 2.53) and latest Fx 65:

My security software (AV and firewall) are not interfering with this.

Maybe it's some "cloud security" on their side?

Test it from location outside of USA... or use proxy/VPN/spoof IP address and check if it'll work then.
