Is it just me getting untrusted connection warnings on 4chan when using Firefox? Is it a problem with sys.4chan.org itself? Every other website works fine and 4chan works fine on other browsers.
It works fine.
Though, if it does work for you in incognito mode, then you can try clearing your 4chan history: History > Show All History > Right click on a 4chan domain and Forget about this site.

Hi OP, I posted this thread >402236
The solution was to turn off my antivirus.
>Alternatively, don't use SSL.
I can understand dumping antivirus, because they all operate based on known signatures, as in they can't identify new viruses and such until the program itself is update to recognize them. But SSL should be a standard security feature of practically any website these days. It does far more to prevent MITM attacks and browser hijackings than any antivirus.
I'm attempting to post this in Chrome, I can't make posts or start threads anywhere on the site.
For some reason when I access different boards via internal navigation, or when I use the list of frequently visited sites, there's no issue, but if I type in a board manually it gives me the untrusted connection spiel. Same for sites like desustorage.
I've been getting random connection errors for 4chan for a while, but it goes away after clicking send again. Now it just goes on ad infinitum.
dropped Avast a few months ago, it's paranoid to the point where I couldn't run an application I had was writing in Visual Studio after I began to implement file handling, and couldn't visit the Chocolate Doom home page for months for zero reason because it was blocked by Avast
these days, I use Microsoft Security Essentials and run a scan with Malwarebytes every once in a while (free version of MB has no active protection, that's what MSE is there for, Malwarebytes is a better AV than MSE though)
MSE is also light as fuck in comparison, you hardly notice it's there.
I've been lurking for 3 days due to this problem.
All you need to do is UPDATE Avast.
I restarted firefox as well but I don't know if that made any difference.
But UPDATING Avast and restarting the PC solves your problem.
