      Your computer's date and time is incorrect because of which if you even try to login to Facebook,Gmail you'll get the error.So,you need to correct your date and time settings before accessing these pages.

    If you are experiencing the same thing on the other sites also, then check your system time of your pc is correct or not.
    This is mentioned as the reason of certificate issue on many websites.
    set your time to synchronize with the internet time server.

    Jeff, Enabling always secured connection will not solve this problem.
    Firefox displays this warning only when you request a secured https connection and it can't complete the request because of the certificate issue..

    Sana, you will have to add firefox to exceptions, here is how to do it.


    It is advisable to keep HTTPS enabled on Facebook by clicking this link:

    but In our case, it seems to be already enabled as you are seeing this warning.
    So, it is not a big deal... just, add an exception.

  • Jeff Fabish

    View the "technical details", which (in firefox) is a drop down. If you're using SSL (https://facebook.com) and your browser deems it as "untrusted", the browser probably deems the certificate as either expired/not yet active, was unable to verify the credibility of the certificate authority, or was self signed. 

    The authority may only include "https://facebook.com" rather than "https://www.facebook.com", so your browser may be warning you of that. You should be able to ignore the warning or add an exception, however before you do make sure that the URL is actually Facebook:


    If you get the warning after you log in, you should enable SSL in your Facebook settings (Account Settings -> Security Tab -> Secure Browsing: enabled)

  • Mjevolve

    goto your account settings , 
    and turn on the option of --- Always use HTTPS .


    if you use Firefox , use the extension -- HTTPS Everywhere .
    it will auto enforce secure connection on all supported sites .

    if you  still get this error , and if you use Firefox ,
    use this addon --- Perspectives .(  https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/perspectives/   )  

    it will check for certificate validation against respectable notaries , and remove.over ride browsers certificate untrust errors .. 

    and if the connection / certificate is really untrusted , 
    it would turn Red .

    hope it helps ....
