    Hey there, so, recently after updating Adguard & Firefox to the latest, I have these issues. When I run firefox and I open websites; most tech giants like Apple, Google, FB they all give me this "Insecure Connection" Error and never let me continue. So I researched and found out it's because before Adguard used to issue these Certificates and it came up as like "Secure Site; Verified by Adguard CA." or something like that. Now when I have adguard filtering, firefox cannot sync, it barely opens website (only opens some like bing) and when I DISABLE Adguard, of course everything runs smooth. Websites like google are verified by "Google Inc." and etc in firefox and I think the issue is adguard is trying to issue these certs "Adguard CA" or something like that and firefox isn't verifying it. So I need a way to stop Adguard from giving our Certifications/Verifications. It's not handy for me.

    EDIT: I just re-installed my Adguard Certificate and everything is fine now. Is there a option to disable adguard issuing certificates? I tried unchecking "Filter HTTPS protocol" but that only stops doing it on https websites; what about just plain HTTP?

    What do you mean by plain HTTP? It just does not require any certificate.

    Sorry for the late reply. How about this;
    See this SS: http://prntscr.com/bkj2va
    You can see the website is verified by "Adguard Personal CA" or whatever or it hands over a certificate.

    How can I just disable this? So when I visit sites like Google it can be verified as "Verified by Google Inc." or something, rather than Adguard Personal CA and etc.

    :) Thanks.

    Hi.
    - uncheck "filter https protocol" in Adguard settings
    - restart your browser
    - go to same page, now the original cert will be in use

    Alternatively if you don't want to disable HTTPS filtering for all sites, and I'm sure Google uses an EV certificate, you can use the option to not filter sites that use an EV certificate. Or you can add websites to the HTTPS exclusions list. :)

    @aegis - Hi! So that option only stops adding certificates to websites only with "HTTPS". How about if I want to disable it for HTTP only? Without the "S"/Secure? A website like NVIDIA for example. (Their basic homepage).

    @Boo - Tried that bro, and apparently Google isn't "EV". :/

    There are no certificates at all for plain HTTP sites.
