Windows 7: Computer not secure error says it's from Mozilla Firefox

Quick question: are your computer's DATE and TIME correct?

Incorrect system data/time can cause certificate errors in Firefox and other browsers....

That's why I asked.

Fixed the time. One of the mobo issues seemed to straighten with resetting the CMOS and I"ve had to do that repeatedly until I get something new. Didn't know that time and date could effect things.
I know there is a prompt to do this at setup screen but that would throw the video out. Lots of
things to juggle.

I'll try to keep that in mind as well but that's tough to do.

Just a thought in passing. It wouldn't kill them to add a message saying check date and time and prevent all this grief if the error is tied directly to it.

It sounds as if you need a new CMOS battery on your motherboard.
They are very cheap.
Plenty of videos on YT about how to do it.

Yes, they can cause the browser security certificate issues you reported, as well as all sorts of problems, especially with security applications (anti-virus and anti-malware), Windows Updates, other programs that "phone home" for updates, lots of things.

Not sure what you mean -- have you been getting errors from programs at startup because of incorrect system date and time?? If so, that is not unexpected.

We are talking about too many different things.

As to batteries I've swapped those around in this computer problem. As well as power supplies.


The continuing problem is this:

After a reset or shut down, a restart has a hard time 'getting to' the video.
Many tries are necessary hoping that one will catch as it usually does eventually.
It presents the screen to use F2 without going to the BIOS for the clock fix etc.

The monitor will say "failed to get the signal' or some such.

Once going it will stay on for weeks.

Hi:

If I understand your post correctly, replacing the CMOS battery and correcting the system time fixed the browser security certificate issue?

If so, then perhaps it might be less confusing to mark this thread as "solved" and to continue discussion of your hardware/video issues in one of your other threads (such as this one or this one)?

Thanks,
MM

We can mark this solved by fixing the time and date to current for the present
problem.

But all that other hardware business (and I understand there might be some
inadvertent duplication in my panic) is separate.

Thanks for helping me through his part. I had not seen the issue come up before and
have had this time set skew from time to time in the past.

No problem.
Computer issues can be nerve-wracking.

It might be advisable to continue discussion of your hardware/video issues in one of your other threads (such as this one or this one)?
