Are you getting the error, “Secure Connection Failed. An error occurred during a connection to https://www.abc.com” on Mozilla Firefox or “The site can’t be reached.” on Google Chrome.

Sometimes Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome fail to browse SSL secure sites and show you below errors. For example, your internet connection is not secure and you browse your bank’s website or money transfer & payment services such as PayPal, Payoneer, Wise, etc, there are chances that you might get the error messages below.

Firefox shows:

Secure Connection Failed
An error occurred during a connection to https://www.abc.com.

Chrome Shows:

This site can’t be reached.

Follow the methods below to remove these error messages:

  • There are two methods to clear these errors. The First Method is for all the browsers. The error message in Google Chrome can be easily removed using the First Method. Firefox users go for Method 2 only if Method 1 doesn’t work.
  • Note: Don’t forget to check your computer’s Date & Time. Configure the Date & Time according to your time zone because sometimes browsers show above error messages when your computer’s Date & Time are not synchronized with the Web Server.
