Unable to connect to bitbucket.org website

Hi all

I'm trying to go to bitbucket.org via Firefox and Chrome and neither allow me to reach the website. This prevents me logging in to see my repos in a browser and I cannot sign into SourceTree as the registration option for BitBucket Cloud tries to get you to sign in via a browser window.

It appears to be a problem with the site's certificate. I've noticed it happening for the last 2 weeks. Previously it worked successfully.

Firefox reports:

"bitbucket.org has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the web site, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it."

"Web sites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust bitbucket.org because its certificate issuer is unknown, the certificate is self-signed, or the server is not sending the correct intermediate certificates."

Google Chrome reports:

"Your connection is not private
Attackers might be trying to steal your information from bitbucket.org (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards). Learn more
NET::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID"

I'm on a Mac, running macOS High Sierra (10.13.6). Firefox v72.01 and Google Chrome v77.0.3865.90.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

Andre

Thank you all for taking the time to suggest answers.

The issue I've been experiencing is happening at work so I think that is playing a role. I have tested access from home on other machines and I am able to access the site. This was using Firefox and Google Chrome on Mac OS and Firefox on Linux (Fedora 31 and Ubuntu 18.04), without having to make any settings changes.

So there is some difference with connecting from the office, which I can understand, even though it had worked previously.

The issue appears to be linked to the site's security certificate.

In the office the certificate is shown by Firefox and Chrome as being issued by Open DNS and the "Cisco Umbrella Root CA" is not trusted, therefore the certficate is not valid.

At home, the browsers all show the certificate issued by DigiCert and therefore trusted - allowing access to the site.

I will settle for not being able to access the site from work, but I thought the certificate issue was worth raising in case it is an issue for others or the website administrators.

Regards, Andre

I can log in bitbucket.org using Firefox.


Please do you mind to double-check if your computer clock working? Sometimes websites get crazy when the computer's clock is incorrectly set.

Are you able to visit other websites?

Regards

I have been having problems getting to a website here as well. I tracked it down

to a script problem I believe the errors I am getting in web console is

TypeError: localStorage is null

you might check your about:config settings and see

what dom.storage.enabled is setto

when i switch the value to true restart the browser the website loads properly.

It sounds like you may have tried to visit the website using http rather than https.

Be sure to use https when accessing the Bitbucket website: https://bitbucket.org/

Hi Tyler, thanks for your response.  I was using https as the response from Firefox states that the site only accepts https:

"bitbucket.org has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely."

Please see my answer below for my further troubleshooting.

Thanks again.

I'm experiencing the same issue on a self-hosted Jira installation running on a Debian/Plesk server with a Let's Encrypt certificate. I can access Jira with Safari, and it shows as secure, but not with Chrome. I get a "Your connection is not private" error and cannot work around it for some reason.
