About this issue

Mozilla Firefox is one of the most popular web browsers because it is free and open source. However, this browser is not ideal either, as certain errors may appear on the monitor screen, such as PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR. You may encounter this problem when you try to connect to certain website servers through Firefox, but this does not happen and a pop-up window appears with a secure connection error. You can of course click the "Try Again" button, but it is unlikely that anything will work.

This is a Firefox network protocol error causing the secure connection to fail. And here's why this situation can happen:

  • due to the filtering of the TCP protocol. This process may well interrupt the connection between the end-user and the webserver.
  • due to the presence of many temporary files that can interfere with new connections to the webserver.
  • due to excessive protection firewalls.
  • due to VPN or proxy. Some sites have their own security protocols and filter end users who connect through VPN or proxy.
  • due to activated geo-blocking, which can prevent access to web servers from certain geolocations.

To get rid of the “Firefox secure connection failed pr_connect_reset_error” problem, follow the guidelines below.

Let's deal with it


Delete cache

  • To clear the cache, first, make sure all Firefox tabs are closed (except for the main tab).
  • Next, three dots in the upper-right corner of the window and click the select "Options."
  • In the new window, select the "Privacy & Security" button, then scroll down in the right pane and open the "Cookies and Site Data" section.
  • Click on "Clear Data", uncheck the "Cookies" and "Site Data" boxes, and check the "Cached Web Content" box. Then click Clean and wait for the process to complete to restart your computer.

Turn off additional protection

If the previous method did not help to remove the pr_connect_reset_ Firefox error, try uninstalling the third-party firewall.

To do this, open the Control Panel, click the Programs section and select the "Uninstall a program" link. Find the list, click third-party firewall and select “Remove” from the context menu.

Then just follow the instructions to completely remove the firewall and reboot your computer.

Disable VPN service

Open the Control Panel, select Programs, then click Programs and Features. In the list of installed programs, find and expand your active VPN client. Next, click Uninstall and follow the instructions to completely uninstall the client.
