Opera not openning SSL pages

  • Hi all. It has been a few days now since I have this problem. When I try to open any page with *.google.com address (e.i. google search, gmail, drive.google.com, etc.) I get the following error:
    "You attempted to reach www.google.ca, but the server presented an invalid certificate.
    You cannot proceed because the website operator has requested heightened security for this domain."
    with a back to safety button. This is happening with google chrome as well. I use Opera 36.0.2130.65 stable 64 bit on Windows 10. Anybody has the same problem?

  • You're getting the error because Google's webpage requires a secure connection, and Opera can't verify that security (specifically, it says the server's certificate is invalid, meaning it can't confirm that the server it's communicating with is really a Google server, versus an imposter).

    As for why you're having this issue, I'm not sure. What kind of network are you connecting through? Home, work, public, etc.? Does it block secure connections?
    If you're connecting through a work, school, hotel, or public network, have you gone through all the pages that ask you to accept the terms and conditions and/or pay? If not, the network you're connected to might be trying to intercept your connection with Google in order to show you those pages. Try going to an insecure website like example.com (literally) to let those pages pop up.
