Blog Owners Seeing "This Connection Is Untrusted"

We are seeing a few blog owners reporting, in Blogger Help Forum: Get Help with an Issue, of inability to use various dashboard functions.
I am seeing
"This Connection Is Untrusted" - You have asked Firefox to connect securely to 7749195048983246407_73be54cd6d1c58526e719a5edd6d94a945570409.blogspot.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.
This prevents me from using various preview features.
We suspect that the problem involves the Firefox browser, possibly following the latest update.

We have a new Problem Rollup topic, in Blogger Help Forum: Get Help with an Issue, where we are requesting details from everybody who is experiencing this problem.

Right now, the problem appears to involve Firefox V36, and attempts to use Live Preview (Template Designer), Post Preview, and Template Preview (Template Editor), when updating blogs published to custom domains. The simplest solution, in this case, may be to un install V36.
(Update 3/6): Mozilla may have fixed this, in V36.0.1.

Custom Domain Migration - Managing The Traffic

Your blog depends upon traffic for its success.

Anything that affects the traffic to your blog, such as any change in the URL, affects the success of your blog. Publishing the blog to a custom domain, like renaming the blog, will affect traffic to your blog. The effects of the change will vary from blog to blog, because of the different traffic to every different blog.Followers. People who find your blog because of recommendations by other people.Search engines. Robotic processes which methodically surf your blog, and provide dynamic indexing to people who search for information.Subscribers. People who read your content from their newsfeed reader, such as the dashboard Reading List.Viewers. People who read your content from their browser.No two blogs are the same - and no two blogs will have the same combinations of traffic sources.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
