    The default browser security on Windows server can be paranoid at times. This must be to minimise chances of system intrusion by a malware of some sort while browsing the Internet.

    However, you could try and verify if your server can talk to outside hosts using the ping command.
    Open up the commandline and run
    ping google.com

    If there is a response, then your computer is able to access the Internet and this may be a problem with a firewall or browser security.

    the same problem occurred and it is displaying on Mozilla Firefox "SSL ERROR RX RECORD TOO LONG"

    You might want to take a look at this article/blog regarding a similar problem between Mozilla and TMG. Article here.

    It seems like your problem is most likely some mismatch between the SSL certificate received by Firefox and the one inspected by TMG 2010. Try using a different browser like Chrome and see if it returns a similar error code. Or you could try what appears to be his solution and use TMG as the proxy server for firefox and see if that solves it.
