That is definitely NOT the problem. I have a system with basically no bookmarks on it because I use a website with a static list of all my bookmarks that are ordered the way I like them AND I do not even visit Facebook.
The message I get is:
Safari can't verify the identity of the website
The certificate for this website is invalid. You might be connecting to a website that is pretending to be "static.ak.facebook.com", which could put your confidential information at risk. Would you like to connect to the website anyway?

I seriously would appreciate it if people who had no idea of what they are talking about would desist from offering solutions they do not know will work.
I had this issue too with my iphone5. I guess it might be caused I tried to copy a link from Google chrome / Safari (a photo link) to my buddies comment in the Facebook app Comment, when this started happening. I think it has something to do with integrating Facebook with other copied links or items. Try this out hopefully this helps because it seems to have stopped for me.
(Please note this was done with an iPhone)
--> Ensure no links/ or odd texts are currently set in your copy hold
--> in notepad type something and copy it (this will hold a non-glitch text?? )
--> log out of Facebook
--> close all browser apps ( Safari / Google chrome)
--> in settings clear history and clear cookies and data
--> close all apps (double tap home and [x] all the open programs)
--> reset/ turn off your phone
--> turn on your phone and open up a browser and try a website.
Hope this clears up the issue. Best of luck.
If I had to guess I'd say the device has nothing to do with this, since it is happening on Macs and IOS devices. Try going to the site RSN.Com, Reader Supported News, which has a facebooks like button on it, and is the first place I noticed it.
I also get it on my iPhone as well as you did.
This is site specific I believe, and probably has something to do with Facebook tracking us all over the internet MFSOB Facebook! ;-)
I just stopped having this problem. I went ahead and clicked on it. Nothing happened the same certificate thing popped up i clicked continue and it just reloads and repeats the process over and over. I had the problem on my ipad 1 and my late 06 imac (lion), my familys 2 iphones, ipod touch 3rd gen and 2nd gen. Didnt want the peoblem on my macbook so i didnt turn it on... Anyway the problem all of a sudden vanished. the problem from my start was from msn.com. which has a facebook integraded like button on the top.
(i dont own all that tech its throughout my family)
I deleated my local DNS cache from all units (fail)
Reset the browsers (fail)
Re installed flash (fail/ wouldnt let me)
Waited for it to stop (Sucess)
It seems to have worked, and im not joking. the solution fixed itself on my internet server (ATT)
I have already posted the fix to this problem (and it worked for me as well as many others).
Please LIKE/vote up the answer so that more people can see it.... Its a simple certificate conflict with a very simple fix, that's affecting A LOT of people.
