I use a Firefox add-on called Skyzip that compresses my data since I am tethering from a cell phone. Recently (probably a Firefox update), no matter what page I try to access while using Skyzip I get the message “Firefox secure connection failed.” I’m now unable to use the compressor, which will send my data bill through the roof! Any suggestions on how to solve this?

Yeah, I have a suggestion! Don’t use SkyZip! It seems to work okay in Chrome but beyond fails in Firefox. There’s a way to disable the Firefox security feature you’re talking about by typing “about:config” in your browser bar, and then in the search box type “security.ssl.enable_ocsp_stapling” and double click the entry that shows up so it changes from “true” to “false.” This will disable the Firefox security feature that’s bringing up the “secure connection failed” Firefox message. Note however that this is not a long-term solution, hence my recommendation for you to use Chrome’s Firefox equivalent of its Data Saver compression add-on.
