    Open up your keychain access (Applications > Utilities > Keychain Access) and then click on the menu option "Keychain Access" and select "Keychain First Aid" from the options. (see image)

     

    I posted more information on how to fix this problem on this thread.

    Thanks for the speedy reply! Greatly appreciated

     

    When I followed the Keychain process no problems were found.  How would you suggest I solve my problem with these static.ak errors?  Should I have my Macbook re-installed? Or is there another way to repair it?

  • canucksgirl01 Level 1 Level 1

    The First Aid process verifies ALL of your certificates. Like I mentioned in the other thread, when I ran this process, I also got the message "no problems found"; but that doesn't mean it didn't "verify" and update the certificate(s). After I ran the First Aid, I didn't have any more messages from any website, and I suspect that you won't either. So, revisit the websites that you were previously getting this message and see if its still occurring or if its been solved. :-)

    I just received the following message after "no problems" were found with Keychain First Aid.  The message appeared on a site I was on that was not in fact Facebook (it was a retail store).

     

    Attached is the screen shot.  Please let me know how to resolve this. Thanks so much!

    Can you click on the "Show Certificate" button and expand open all the options in the certificate details, and retake the screenshot?

     

    I can't really tell you how to proceed without more info.

  • MsVanessa Level 1 Level 1

    Yes sure thing.  Here are the following screen shots (I scrolled down on the certificate so you are able to see the full message, hence 3 screen shots).  Really appreciate your time, thanks.

    There's nothing to worry about. Akamai is the host for Facebook and the Polyvore website uses the "Like" functionality, and therefore require the Facebook certificate. Safari is merely telling you that it "can't verify" the certificate because the name "Facebook" doesn't match up to the URL (which is to Polyvore). You can manage this under the "Show Certificate" options, under "Trust" and "When using this certificate", select the always trust option. (Doing this will stop you from getting incessant messages that it can't verify the Facebook Certificate).

    Thanks.

     

    How come now when I go to Facebook the following appears? So many issues - my apologies!!

    I know that I have to use https://www.facebook.com and make a secure connection. If I type it as you did it gets automatically changed. IIRC, I had to opt-in to that at some point in the past but I thought I read something in the paper the other day that everybody would be required to use it.

     

    It's definitely the way to go and I wish every web site would adopt such a policy.

  • canucksgirl01 Level 1 Level 1

    That's a different problem. You should be able to solve it by clearing your DNS cache.

     

    Applications > Utilities > Terminal

     

    Find your OS version and copy (or type) the command into terminal and press Enter.

     

    For Lion / Mountain Lion:

     

    sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder

     

    For Leopard / Snow Leopard (10.5 and above):

     

    dscacheutil -flushcache

     

    For Leopard / Snow Leopard (10.4 and below) and for Tiger:

     

    lookupd -flushcache

     

    After that, close Terminal and check the FB website again.

    @MadMacs0 - DNS request are normally cached to speed up lookups, but when values are no longer valid, you can end up with errors like you both have described. Its not a "policy" change by Facebook, and not everyone is having this problem (but many are, due to the reason I just explained).

    Sorry, but you are wrong about that. I just don't know whether it's been implemented yet or not.

     

    Facebook moves all users to HTTPS for added security.

     

    It's possible that DNS caching could be involved, as well, of course.

     

    and I beleive your instructions should read:

    For Tiger (10.4 and below):

     

    lookupd -flushcache

  • canucksgirl01 Level 1 Level 1

    @MadMacs0 - Facebook moving to a secure connection doesn't create an invalid http connection. They would merely point the http connection to https.

     

    Correct. The 3rd should have just said Tiger... (Its been a long day).

    You would certainly think so, but Facebook would have to have implemented it that way. When a number of users start suddenly having the same issue my troubleshooting self first asks "What's changed?"

     

    DNS Caching has never been an issue for me, but I know that flushing has worked others, so I don't dismiss it as a solution the way some "helpers" here do.

  • canucksgirl01 Level 1 Level 1

    Depends on how many are "a number of users". I haven't had any problems accessing Facebook regardless of the protocol. I only know of one other person who did, and it was solved by flushing the DNS cache.
