Windows 7: Firefox update has caused a problem

19 May 2016   #11

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit Build 7600 / Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP3

By any chance, are you using 64-bit Firefox? seems there is an issue with certificates, AV software and 64 flavor.
32-bit Firefox doesn't exhibit this problem. AV producers are fixing this as it seems it's related to missing files for cheking secure conections.

Certificate Store Checker - New build available. I was aware of this tool but didn't post details in this thread bou need to before as it only works until it's database is outdated then you need to wait for the developer to release a new build. Basically it checks for suspicious certificates but you shouldn't delete any certificates without checking them out yourself.

Certificate Store Checker - Click "RCC" for download. Runs without installation.
