Web content control - Secure Connection Failed
As I wrote earlier, we have problems with tons of false positives on web content control.
When you are using IE, you get a decent and clear message,
This web site contains restricted content.
Access to this type of content has been blocked.
However, if you are using Firefox or Chrome, you will get something totally different...
Secure Connection Failed
An error occurred during a connection to www.certest.es. Peer received a valid certificate, but access was denied. Error code: SSL_ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED_ALERT
The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

- Try running Windows Network Diagnostics.
Seems that you have F-Secure browsing protection extensions disabled in Chrome and Firefox. On my machine i have them enabled and can see proper block page, similar to IE. Without those extensions the product can't properly handle https websites.
If that is not the case, please, contact support. We will need diagnostic information from one of affected machines for investigation.
Unfortunately, I dont think all my users can turn it on, even if properly instructed.
I'll try to force it on via group policy, following these instructions :
One question, does the extension ID stay the same, when FSCSpr is updated/upgraded?
> The reason in short is that browsers are preventing automatic installation of extensions in order to protect user from getting unwanted extensions.
F-Secure could maybe perform the install action during Windows boot-up time, when browsers are not yet running and protecting themselves?

afaik, it's just a registry setting, but then again, I know nothing about browsers and how they work (or doesnt work...) .
Anyways, made a group policy with chrome admx templates and it seems to be working, browsing protection is now forced enabled on chrome. Need to check out firefox next.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
Sorry for the delay.
There’s a ID in registry. Go to LOCAL_MACHINE “SOFTWARE\\Mozilla\\Firefox\\Extensions”. There will be a value [email protected] if the extension is installed.
