Error 111 (net::ERR_TUNNEL_CONNECTION_FAILED): Unknown error

This message is sometimes displayed when accessing an SSL page via a proxy (including our own payment page PayPal).

It is caused by Chrome being unable to render the 502/302 proxy response for some sites (Issue 119713).

Check your browsers Proxy settings. If possible remove the proxy and try again.

To change this setting, go to chrome://chrome/settings/

Then Click Show Advanced Settings. Scroll down to Network and click Change proxy settings… Uncheck Automatically Detect.
