I have this problem on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS: whenever I open a new Chromium - Chrome - Firefox - Opera window to reach ANY website, it'll only show a "Please Update Internet Explorer" page - which I'm not using, being on ubuntu.

So how can I fix this?

Thanks in advance!


It looks like your Router has been hacked!

If you have another Internet device check if there are the same message if you are connecting over the same router.

May be that not all the required certs were downloaded on your computer. Bring up terminal and type the following command to refresh your SSL certificates:

$ sudo apt-get install --reinstall ca-certificates

Once you re-install the certs, restart your computer and try again.
