Facebook issues

Postby French Castanut » Nov 20th, 2012, 11:57 am

For a couple weeks now I've had this problem. Sometimes it works, sometimes I get the certificate error msg. Then if I click on "proceed to Website", I get the "invalid URL" msg. In both Chrome, IE & Firefox.

BUT, if I restart my computer, then it's accessible again maybe for a couple minutes until it poops again. Anyone else have the same issue?

Facebook which support the SSL protocol are subjected to digital certificates, ascertaining web server identifications to internet connection requests from web browsers. Some discrepancies occur, resulting in non-verification by a third party certificate authenticating body, like if the date and time on the certificate are not correct on Facebook.

The error can be resolved if you correct the operating system date and time, Security certificate errors occur as they expire over time and if your computer's date does not match the current date or correct date, chances of getting this warning are high.

The year is the important thing. I had this happen once because my computer thought it was 1980 or some such date. Changed the year, and voila!
