Certificates used by websites which are considered to be secure (their URL begins with “https://”) are only issued for a certain period of time. If a website presents a certificate with a validity period that doesn’t match the current value of your system’s clock, Firefox can’t verify that the connection is secure and therefore opens a “Your connection is not secure” error page.
