It´s most likely to be a error related to SSLV3. I have a full report with info that change during research: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1_-0mG-_Od5Q1E6Nq6hc_Jx8FPEcjCVMr7qJ2mH8bEmM/edit quick report: ---------------- Solutions: Step 1: Delete cache and other browser data Step 2: Change DNS to google´s 184.108.40.206 The above 2 steps only work for a day or so then the errors comes back. Workaround 2: Change your modem/router OR upgrade its firmware. It seems that routers/modems from many manufacturers have this problem, at least: TP-Link, D-Link, Buffalo, ZTE and Telewell. Workaround 2: You can try to change the MTU value from your router/modem to 1400 Both OSX users and Windows 7 users have reported error and from areas around the world: Preston, United Kingdom PR11RY Richmond, Virginia, United States 22109 Reykjavik, Iceland Vienna, Austria tests can be made with "firefox": * Open "about:config" in your browser * type "ssl" into the filter box * Double click on the following to set them to true (enable them): security.enable_ssl2 security.ssl2.rc2_128 security.ssl2.rc2_40 security.ssl2.rc4_128 security.ssl2.rc4_40 * Double click on the following to set it to false (not enabled) security.enable_ssl3 * You may need to close the browser and restart it to ensure these settings take effect. Reversing the above setting will restore the browser back to defaults

"SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_ALERT" is described as "SSL peer reports incorrect Message Authentication Code." This could happen due to various reasons. One of the common reasons is clock being out of sync. Use a tool like http://browserinformation.appspot.com to check if the system time on the affected device is correctly set.
