I can't figure out why on sites that I previously regularly  accessed on my Windows 8.1 laptop using most recent Firefox browser now display a message that the site is insecure.  Most recently this morning it happened with my bank connection which I cannot believe are now suddenly insecure.   The notice says that the owner of the site " has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website."

 

Like I said, this has been happening with other websites but now that I see it is happening with my bank whose site I have confidence in I realize I need to get this figured out.   On another site I was able to override Firefox and connect - but on another website it wouldn't override.   On the one that I did manage to override the site I couldn't use it because it was impossible to use.   I wanted to respond to the site but couldn't ever figure out where or how to do so.

 

Your insight would be appreciated.

Make sure your computer has the correct date (and year) and time.
