Safari :: Its Won't Security Certificates For Facebook And Twitter Verify On Connection
Feb 21, 2012
At least once every day a box pops up that says Safari can't verify the identity of Facebook.com or Twitter.com. I click OK or adjust it so say "Always Trust" and then Facebook.com goes blank. The blank page will say access denied, page cannot be found, etc. etc.
All the fixes I've found online seem to be Windows-based and suggest making sure the clock/time is accurate. Mine has always been up to date so that's not an option for me. I've also disabled pop-ups as per a suggestion and that didn't do anything.†So if there's any Mac users with knowledge of security certificates, it'd be a huge help.

I was browsing on Twitter.com, and when I tried to follow someone there, it redirected me to Facebook.com. Now, whenever I type in twitter.com in Safari or Firefox I'm immediately redirected to facebook.com. In fact, twitter is being replaced by facebook in the url, so that if I type www.twitter.com/someone I get redirected to www.facebook.com/someone.
Software Update just prompted me with an update for iTunes and a Security Update without thinking about it since they are apple updates I did them. After restarting every single application that utilizes a SSL certificate from Keychain is prompting me saying that the SSL Certificate has an invalid issuer. This includes SSL certificates from Apple themselves ( mobile me, apple.com etc.. ). Anyone else having this issue or is it just my computer being massively screwy?
I have started using Twitter for a business I'm running and am also going to be using other social networking sites such as Facebook, Plurk, LinkedIn, and possibly MySpace. I have heard that there are applications for sites such as Twitter to use on my Mac.
I am using Safari 4.0.2. I was trying to login to Facebook, but yesterday, I got this message that says: "Safari can't open the page [URL] because Safari can't establish a secure connection to the server [URL]." It has continued to happen.
I've tried doing things with proxy. I've tried resetting Safari. I've tried doing things with cookies. I've tried disabling extensions. Next step is to try throwing my laptop out the window. This only started happening yesterday and there is no issues with other sites. It's not my internet connection. I can't get to Facebook by direct URL or through google or through links in my history. Macbook Pro bought in 2012 with Mountain Loin.
There is a thread like this labelled "solved" here with my last 2 posts in it unanswered. But I still can't get this security update to verify. I tried to repair permissions using disk utility and - as far as I can tell it - does repair permissions, but it still doesn't verify. I've even tried downloading Google Chrome and Firefox browsers and they won't verify either.
Suddenly Mail has stopped sending emails. Connection Doctor says server is 'offline' and I should ensure passwords and settings are correct. But I changed NOTHING - it just suddenly stopped sending and receiving!
I'm using a late 2012 iMac and a Retina MacBook Pro, both with very latest OS - same problem on both. I've restarted my TimeCapsule and BT HomeHub
Every half hour I keep getting this popup: I've deleted my cache, cookies, browser history and rss articles. There are no twitter/rss bookmarks anywhere. I could deselect the option in Preferences to auto update any rss feeds of the bookmarks bar, but rather leave this default. Why is Safari insisting there is a twitter rss feed and wants to update it when I cleared everything? There seems to be some mention of twitter rss somewhere in Safari. I'v also tried to delete the Database3 file. Safari made a new one, but the twitter rss popup still appears. I'm using a Mac osx 10.4.1 dual Core Intel Xeon. Can I totally clear any rss subscriptions/feeds somehow (even though I never subscribed to any twitter rss feed).
Lately I've been using my schools wireless connection, and when I have AirPort on, I noticed that on Share tab, on Finder, I can see anothers PC's and Macs that are using the same wireless, I tried to enter on another mac and I saw some folders and documents, I was logged as a guest! So the question here is: when I'm using AirPort, with the osx firewall, can somebody see my folders like I saw the other?
Used Adblock in leopard and am sure there was an option for it in preferences, now running SL and I have installed the latest version of Adblock but can not seem to verify if it is installed or not and there is no option for it any more.
After upgrading to Safari 5.1.4 I'm constantly getting error meesage pop-ups similar to these.Currently I'm running Lion 10.7.3 My computer time & date is correct.† I have reset Safari's cache / cookies, etc to no no avail.†On some websites its no displaying graphics properly and its starting to get extremely frustrating.Safari is running in 64-bit mode†.Is it time to uninstall Safari 5.1.4 and install the previous release?

1. Very recently I keep getting the message 'Cannot verify certificate of server' on a great number of webpages on my mac,including this apple site.¬†¬† This has been around the time of getting an iPhone, perhaps a coincidence? ¬†¬† I have never seen this message before.¬† I press 'continue' however it's getting a bit annoying.¬†
2.¬† Also, since getting this message my facebook page cannot load properly on safari (mac).¬† It comes up mis-aligned on the page, in times new roman font,¬†¬† with no colour or logos/images.¬† This is around the time of changing the password of my facebook account via my iPhone, again, not sure if this is a coincidence.¬†I'm on snow leopard 10.6.8. ¬†
WIth using 2 desktop iMacs,¬† we are both getting messages that 'Safari can't verify the identity of the website' or we get a message that the website cannot be found.¬† Earlier today it could not find Apple Support Discussions.¬† It does open some pages, but slowly. We use Airport Express, in between the iMacs,¬† and have not had this problem before.¬† I read on another site that I can power down the router.¬† ¬†
What will happen if I unplug the Airport Express?¬†¬† Do I loose my settings?¬†¬† Also,¬† what causes this issue?¬†¬† It appears that other Mac users are reporting it now too.¬† If unplugging is an answer,¬† is there any specific order?¬† Also,¬† is there a way to turn off AIrport Express first, and should I do that?¬†

In both safari and chrome when I type in my username, to login to facebook or ancestry.com or other sites,the browser suddenly acts as though it's been redirected and then returns me to the login page, The username box delets what I pe after about 4-5keystrokes OR it takes me to another login page and inserts the username and password, but won't do anything beyond that.¬† A different user account on the same computer does not have that problem with logins, and I can login no problem if I am on the computer under that other user account.
the troubleshooter on apple support says to reboot in safe mode and see if it happens, however in safe mode, I cannot connect to my wireless network and the browsers won't open.
I have a eGo ITB 800 Firewire drive which has been running fine with Time Machine on my Leopard OSX 10.5 IMac. I just got a new IMac running Lion OSX 10.7.3 and want to migrate my files to the new machine.¬† The new Lion IMac will not mount the drive. I updated the system software today, so it has the latest patches.
1. It appears under Devices in the Finder but Migration Assistant does not "see" it at all. Time Machine DOES recognize it as an Iomega HDD, though I have Time Machine turned off because I don't want to make a back up of the new machine until I transfer the files from the old one.
2. When I connect with Firewire 800, System Information will see a drive there, but it says "unknown device".
3, When I connect with USB, System Information will see the Iomega HDD there and report on it's specs. ¬†
4.¬† I power cycled the drive to see if that would help and I got the warning that I should unmount drives first.¬†
5. In the finder, I can see¬† my old files on the Iomega.¬†
6. I can't find any information on this one the Iomega web site, and they say that no software upgrades or drivers are necessary.
All of this implies to me that the disk is ok and the connections are ok.¬† Does anyone know how can I get this drive mounted and working so I can transfer my files?
I've been having issues with Facebook on my safari browser. The thumbnail pictures and profile picture will randomly not load. Hitting refresh may or may not fix the problem sometimes. I'm not too sure what causes this, I've done lots of searches and I haven't found anything similar to this. I'm running Safari 5.0.3 with adblocker as my only extension (I've disabled it and the problem still occurs).
is it me or Facebook.com doesnt works? I click everything, my profile the search button and no action. I dont have any other browser so i cant check. Can someone please check it out, or see if its for everyone.
It never did this with Netscape or Firefox, and from what I've heard, it doesn't do it with my friend, who uses Safari all the time. I have Safari set up so it automatically fills in forms AND accepts cookies from any site, and it STILL logs me out suddenly in about a minute. How can I keep myself logged in all the time, like it's SUPPOSED to?
