[Solved] firefox-developer-edition blocks certain webseites

Hi,

since the update from firefox-developer-edition-68.0b8-1 to firefox-developer-edition-68.0b9-1 I can't access certain websites, like reddit.com for example.

I get a "Software is Preventing Firefox Developer Edition From Safely Connecting to This Site" (DigiCert Global Root CA) (MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_MITM_DETECTED) error and there is no way to add an exception.
It works again when I downgrade firefox but doing that I cannot use my normal firefox profile anymore, cause the "firefox version I am trying to use is too old, please create a new profile" which I don't want to do.

Is anyone else having this problem or any idea how to fix it?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers

Are you behind some kind of https proxy ?

If not, is security.enterprise_roots.enabled set to true in nightly about:config ?

Hi Lone_Wolf, thx for the reply.

I am not behind a proxy, just a boring German home internet connection.

ecurity.enterprise_roots.enabled is not set to true. Did mozilla change anything with firefox with the last update so that would be necessary? As I said, the downgraded firefox version works as usual. I would try it but I am not exactly sure what the implications are exactly.

Cheers

Well, not sure what exactly happened but without me doing anything it just works now.

Sorry if I have wasted your time mate.

Cheers

Not a waste, reading about that option refreshed my knowledge about the certificate system.
Please prepend [Solved] to the thread title.

I get this error from time to time. Not sure what makes them appear. Fastmail.com and https://wiki.mozilla.org/CA:AddRootToFirefox are two afflicted sites, both with "DigiCert Global Root CA", is listed in /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt

Yeah, it's still not gone for me either. Happens from time to time but resolve itself after a while. No idea what is happening.
