Invalid Security Certificates?

Recently, in both TenFourFox and regular Firefox, more and more sites are blocked from loading due to "invalid or outdated security certificates." is there a workaround for this or is this being worked on for a future update? Examples of sites that have problems for me today include Facebook, Outlook and I am running 104F on Mac OS 10.4.11, with respectable RAM and other specs.

    First, beforehand: we don't support alternating between Firefox 3.6 and TenFourFox, and with TenFourFox 38 you run the real likelihood of losing data. You do so at your own risk.

    That said, assuming you are running TenFourFox 38, we use the exact same certificate store as regular mainline Firefox, so you should never see that message. I'd check your computer's clock. Even being off by just a few minutes can be enough to make certificate checks fail, and some users haven't noticed their calendars were off by years.

    I have this problem, too. It totally disables tenfourfoxbox (which has worked perfectly with this website since forever), yet I can open the same website with firefox 38.10.0. The problem is that I absolutely need it to work with tenfourfoxbox. This problem began one week ago; until then, tenfourfoxbox worked perfectly with this website.

    Additionally, it is happening on four different computers.

    My date and time are absolutely correct as they are set automatically.

    Can anyone please help me?

    Thank you in advance.
