    Hi,

    I have been having this problem for a while. It happens every now and then, sometimes more often too. Sometimes at random times, when I try to access https websites in Safari such as Internet banking, signing in into eBay etc, it has an error.

    It says "Safari can't open the page https://signin.ebay.com.au/... because Safari can't establish a secure connection to the server signin.ebay.com.au". To resolve this problem I always have to turn off my Airport and then turn it back on. See screenshot - http://s680.photobucket.com/albums/vv167/ina_j_8/?action=view&current=Picture8.png

    I've also tried opening it in Firefox and it also doesn't work. In Firefox, the error is "Data Transfer Interrupted: The connection to signin.ebay.com.au has terminated unexpectedly. Some data may have been transferred." See screenshot - http://s680.photobucket.com/albums/vv167/ina_j_8/?action=view&current=Picture9.png

    Does anyone know why this happens? Can anyone help me?

    Uninstall Firefox... and reinstall works for me... if that ever happens... Or just do something like Reset Safari on the Safari Menu... that might work also... what confuses me is why it is in both browsers... Normally you would expect it only to be in one??? Do you have a firewall or the like?? Little Snitch maybe??
