Mozilla has halted the automatic updates to Firefox 65 as users are unable to browse web sites due to certificate errors. These errors are being caused by conflicts between various antivirus program's HTTPS scanning and Firefox 65.

Firefox 65 was released this week and with it came numerous reports from users that when they visited safe web sites, they were shown an error by Firefox 65 that states Your Connection is not secure and that there is an issue with the HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) of the site.

I installed Firefox Quantum 64 bit version 65.0 on 30 January around 06:00 AM.
As Antivirus I use Avast (free AV only) fully updated.
Up to now I haven't experienced any issues at all.

Perhaps the people who had problems used Aghast?
