I cannot access Linkedin. I use a Mac mini. I've tried from Firefox, Chrome and Safari. This is new, in the past week or so. I've tried using "linkedin.com" and various other links to specific pages, with no luck. Any clue what's happening here and how to fix it?

The error messages:

Firefox: "The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified."

Chrome: "www.linkedin.com unexpectedly closed the connection."

Safari: "Safari can't open the page... because Safari can't establish a secure connection to the server "linkedin.com".

I've fixed the problem. I have Avast installed. I unchecked the "Web Shield" option. Linkedin loads just fine now from both Firefox and Chrome. I didn't bother to check Safari.

I allow Avast to make automatic updates. I have a hunch that Avast modified its Web Shield code recently and that this is what caused the problem. Going forward, I'll keep Web Shield enabled and disable it only when I want to access Linkedin.

Good luck!
