My firefox just updated to 65 now just about everything is blocked. Even some of Mozilla own sites.
Is this normal or is there a problem with it?
How can I go back with out messing up my firefox?
I think this security thing has gotten out of hand.

I just tried to go to the sites listed and I got the following and these site are Mozilla's own site and they are not configured right, so how do they expect other site to configured properly.

Your connection is not secure

this what I have been getting on almost all the site.

Yes I know *.mozillaZine.org is not Mozilla! but is more or less the unofficial help site. At least as far as I am concerned.

It is not a Firefox browser problem though.

Two common reasons for errors on https:// links is the time/date is wrong on the OS and a security software (such as a antivirus client) is inserting its own certificate in their idea of trying to keep you safe but instead cause errors on https:// links.

The information is in the articles I linked to.

The "*.mozillaZine.org is not Mozilla!" is part of my signature so people are aware.

Yep AV software strikes again (not I may add Windows Defender)
