    When I try to open gmail website, I get this error on my firefox.

    This Connection is Untrusted


    You have asked Firefox to connect
    securely to www.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.

    Technical Details
    www.google.com uses an invalid security certificate.
    The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate has expired.
    The certificate will not be valid until 17/12/2009 4:00 PM.
    (Error code: sec_error_expired_issuer_certificate)

    I Understand the Risks
    If you understand what's going on, you
    can tell Firefox to start trusting this site's identification.
    Even if you trust the site, this error could mean that someone is
    tampering with your connection.
    Don't add an exception unless
    you know there's a good reason why this site doesn't use trusted identification.
