    Newton second law of motion states that acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass. The Higgs field (mechanism) is the cause of fictitious forces?

    No, that's not the case. The inertial mass shouldn't be confused with the rest mass of a particle...although there is an equality between them.

    Fictitious forces are fictitious. That means they are not real and do not require a cause.
