Insecure Connection

Post by peter.sables » Tue Mar 21, 2017 6:05 pm

For a couple of weeks now I keep getting a message up saying my connection to Avant Browser is insecure. Sometimes it opens ok, sometimes not. Is anyone else experiencing this problem? I have the latest version with Firefox rendering engine.

Can you post the exact message you're getting? Because you're not "connecting" to Avant, it's an application you're opening.

You're using it to connect to websites. Are you getting this error when you're connecting to secure sites? Since not all sites are secure, that would explain why it might sometimes appear and sometimes not. Or, do you get sometimes with a single website and sometimes return to that website and don't get the message?

I'll post the exact message when it comes up again, but this happens when I open Avant and it's a full screen message instead of the home page. I've since found that two of my friends in different parts of the country (UK) have had the same message on screen.

I forgot to mention I'm using the ix quick search engine, as are the two friends.

Problem solved. Firefox was blocking ix quick because the security certificate had expired on 11th March. I contacted ix quick and they have renewed the certificate.
