anyone else having this issue?

Mozzilas instructions was to turn of SAFE BROWSING in Bullgaurd but that didnt work, cant get google.co.uk to load

our website loads?

i wanted to try Firefox Portable in my RAM drive as the new version of Opera is being a PIA making you click twice sometimes especially on tabs, i read also that Firefox is officialy the fastest browser, so using it in a RAM drive should speed it up even more

one thing i do like about opera is in built anti-coin mining

thanks Thar

this is a new install and i tried to load that page you linked me too in firefox with the same results

any HTTPS site doesnt work

www.google.co.uk uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. The server might not be sending the appropriate intermediate certificates. An additional root certificate may need to be imported. Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER

fixed it with this (however if I turn it back off as advised it starts happening again)

Chosen solution
Thank you for the detailed information. The certificate says it was issued by:

lonbp00001_london_proxy Digital Engineering Services Royal Bank of Scotland, London

Is this a new installation of Firefox, or did Firefox performed a Refresh?

In order to trust a business proxy, you can manually import the signing certificate. Firefox can do that if you change this setting temporarily:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful or accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste root and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the security.enterprise_roots.enabled preference to switch the value from false to true

Once Firefox trusts your proxy, I suggest flipping that back to false to keep Firefox isolated from possible fraudulent certificates injected into the Windows certificate store.
