Firefox will not let me access my gmail account.

Posted

It says "this connection is untrusted" and starts banging on about certificates - BUT it doesn't tell me how to obtain, upload or validate any such verification codes.

Here's what it says: "Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.

If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue."

And here's the technical details: accounts.google.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate will not be valid until 2/20/2013 1:35 PM. The current time is 2/6/2013 5:27 PM.

(Error code: sec_error_expired_certificate)


So, Clearly I have done something stupid and would appreciate any help available to reverse this! I can still access my gmail on my phone so I reckon it's a computer thing ratehr than a google thing. But you never know.

Many Thanks,


DesK
