"This Connection is Untrusted" without the "I Understand the Risks" option?

Dear Sir/Madam:

I use Firefox (Version 10.0.2) on a Mac OS X (Version 10.6.8).

Now, when I try to log onto my Google account for Google Groups, I continue to get to the page with the following message:

"This Connection is Untrusted

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

         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.

         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.

         [Get me out of here!] Button        
               
         Technical Details
         accounts.google.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate will not be valid until 2011-07-20 8:00 PM. The current time is 2011-03-02 12:20 AM.

(Error code: sec_error_expired_certificate)"

There are two problems here: 1.) The two times given are all past; 2.) I don' have the "I Understand the Risks" option.

I have used Firefox for a long time and got the problem only today.

What can I possibly do?

Thank you!

Mauricio: I just solved the problem. For some unknown reason, my system time fell back one year to 2011, even though the month and date were still correct, and at first I somehow missed the wrong year. I have just adjusted the year and now everything seems to be okay.

Thank you!
