This has never happened to me before. I'm using Firefox 8.0. I often get this error message sometimes when visiting gmail.com, and other times while going to "Log out" once logged in. But I also got it while loading gmail. Basically I get: Secure Connection Failed An error ocurred during a connection to accounts.google.com SSL peer reports incorrect Message Authentication Code (Error code: ssl_error_bad_mac_alert) - The page you are trying to view can not be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. - Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem. Alternatively, use the command found in the help menu to report this broken site. and a Try again button. How do I fix this? Sometimes hitting refresh helps, but is there a way to avoid this error altogether? What should I do? Is it a fault on my side, on google's, or my ISP's? Your help is really welcomed, thanks!
