    I also got this problem and for me it got fixed when i went in the keychain then i went in the system roots category. 'VeriSign Class 3 Public Primary Certification Authority - G5' was personalized so i modified it and put it to defaut settings.

    I hope i can help some users with this solution

     

    PS : I also tried a lot of things before. delete all certificates in the session category may have to be done too.

    It is a dangerous security problem to get us all ignoring the security warnings, especially when they are on Paypal or bank sites.  I have switched to Firefox for this kind of work now.  It seems to be doing just fine.  No garbage messages.

    I have no answers, but am having the same problem and I hope that adding to the thread may help us get some attention. It affects both Safari and Chrome for me, but not Firefox and I've tried every suggestion from the thread with no success, although I'm running Lion and I think some of the earlier posts were for earlier operating systems (i.e. I can't find a safari plist file).

     

    Apple, please help!

    you should check the date on your laptop, mine was incorrect therefore causing the certificates to be identified an invalid, this may not be the case for everyone but by changing the date to the correct one it has resolved the issues.

    I had this problem also.

    Starting safari and going to the default apple page (http://www.apple.com/startpage/) would throw an error about a facebook certificate.

     

    In addition, when this problem happened, I would loose all my safari extensions.

     

    It only happened at work, connected through the work firewall so something was probably getting messed up by the firewall.

     

    For me the keychain fix worked, specifically, open keychain, command-, for preferences, click the certificate tab and set Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) to off.

     

    It immediately fixed the issue with facebook and I was able to re-install my extensions. Which I used to have to wait until I was off the network to fix.

    I just wanted to update this thread that I found a solution for me on another thread. It looks like my problem with the certificates was a bug in Lion. I was also having difficulty connecting to the App Store to download Mountain Lion for an upgrade. Here is the thread and here is the blog post that I found on that thread with the instructions that solved my issue. I hope this helps someone else too! Good luck!

    I've been having this problem in the past month or so, and finally decided I was annoyed enough to read up a little.

     

    I opened the Date/Time setting in System Preferences and it was already checked to update automatically, so I just locked the Control Panel and went back to my business on Safari and so far it's worked!? I didnt do any of the plist, resetting or Keychain stuff.

     

    I cant explain why it worked, it could all happen to be a fluke, but I'll keep you posted if it comes back.

     

    (Safari v6.0, Lion OS)

    @Cliff-R - how do you delete or change the keychain certificates? After reading all the certificates that have "trusted access" to my computer I was hoping to delete the ones that look suspicious - like AOL having a certificate that lasts until 2037 - really? I don't remember saying that was OKAY. I'll be making Safari ask me everytime from now on.

    The problem might of went away but you did not solve it.  My date box is checked and the problem still comes and goes.  I believe it is associated with either the router or your ISP.  Truthfully it is beginning to *&^!  me off because it is happening more and more.  Sadly I never had the problem with windows so I may be forced to abandon mac products since NO ONE can provide a reasonable solution.

    @sister mary constance

    I don't remember anymore. I try to do it right now but i can only delete the ones that aren't in system root. I updated yesterday to 10.8.2 and i'm having this problem back
