Apparently BD 2019 blocking some https urls in multiple browsers
About a year ago, I tried installing BD, but because of a sudden, inexplicable turn of just about any https url to being dangerous, including links I was visiting all the time, and not being able to get a quick solution, I got rid of it.
A few weeks ago, I got a full version Giveaway, which I was enthusiastic to try out. Shortly after I got this same issue come up. I followed some tutorial online involving installing some certificate file from BD files and the problem was gone. Yesterday, after being forced to uninstall Firefox, with the portable version I always use, the problem came back and in spite of trying to follow all sorts of instructions, including what worked before, it all failed. Before trying to throw out BD, I decided to just try the installable version of Firefox and it worked for most links until I came to that of accessing the Cpanel of my web host to urgently work on my website. It completely failed, including after contacting BD Chat support, with whom we went throw disabing all sorts of settings.
He said he was going to escalate the issue & his tech colleagues will respond within 48hours.
I however do not have this much time to wait with my preferred browser Firefox. In Opera I was only able to log in to Cpanel after making an exception for the site's certificate. Also a warning in Chrome => NET::ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID
I see in different forums this is a common BD issue other AV like Avast, AVG, McAfee, etc never ever posed. It's really been a nuisance, especially regarding have to work on my site via Cpanel or at one time accessing it, or even Google & other sites in some cases! I have wasted lots of time looking online for solutions + over 30 minutes of time with BD Online support + submitting a ticket.
Is there a simple solution to this at all for all browsers and which one has to deal with every now & then because of visiting site A, B or C, something other AVs have no problem with? I am just in the process of ditching Bit Defender today, even if I have a years license.
Thank you in advance.
