This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to support.mozilla.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

What Should I Do?

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.

Technical Details

support.mozilla.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate will not be valid until 7/16/2008 7:27 AM.

Previously, the icons for add-ons (e.g., noscript, the weather, or reminders) were displayed at the bottom of my screen, and I could click on them to perform the relevant function. Now they are not displayed, and I don't know how to get them back. I'm particularly interested in getting back noscript, as I almost always use it, but I regularly accessed a lot of add-ons from the now-missing information bar. I don't even know what this information/icon bar/display is called.

I have cleared all my history in Firefox, but when I browse on Google, it still says which pages I've visited (they have purple lettering instead of blue).

I know it is a Firefox problem, because when I select "Never remember history", the sites will change back to blue text. However, I would like to track my history in the future. Any way to solve?

How to replace "Apply Downloaded Update Now" with "Check for Updates" in Help menu when the update fails because the downloaded update files are missing but "Update Ready to Install" window keeps appearing?

Issue

I have another kind of problem with Firefox

Description

Firefox "Software Update" "Ready to Install" window appeared. The "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\updates\0" folder contained update.mar, update.status, and update.version files. All 3 files were deleted. The next time Firefox was started, no update occurred because the update files were missing. In Menu bar, clicking Help showed in the dropdown menu that "Apply Downloaded Update Now" was still listed. Clicking "Apply Downloaded Update Now" opened "Software Update" "Update Ready to Install" window, so Firefox still thinks the update files exist but they don't. In the "Software Update" window, clicking "Restart Firefox" restarts Firefox, but again there is no update, and "Apply Downloaded Update Now" remains in the Help menu. How can "Apply Downloaded Update Now" be replaced with "Check for Updates" so the update files can be downloaded?

The certificate is only valid for Now, on 1 of my 3 computers, I received the I understand the risks, and an option to Add an Exception.
