The server's security certificate is not yet valid! szakon 10/25/11 11:30 PM
Google Chrome version:14.0.835.202
Operating System:OSX
Error Message: The server's security certificate is not yet valid!
Extensions installed:
Please describe your question/comment in detail (for example, steps to reproduce the problem):

I have checked the SSL certificate for login.salesforce.com and it is totally valid (works in Firefox!). My system date/time is also correct.
It seems that this version of Chrome has a major SSL bug that I have never seen before.  Please advise.

Try updating to the latest stable release 15.0.874.102

Sorry, I am not on a beta channel.  When I go to About Google Chrome, my version says it is up to date!   It seems that this is a major bug and I am quite curious how this version got through QA.

The stable was moved to  15.0.874.102 today for all OS's( http://googlechromereleases.blogspot.com/) not sure why its saying yours is up to date.

I started having this problem with one of my credit card's payment site only after I updated to 15.0.874.102 .

We are also experiencing this problem.  We're an all Mac company running version 15.0.874.102 of Google Chrome.  We just switched back to salesforce and everyone is getting this message!

I discovered 2 important things yesterday:  by rebooting my MBP - 1) The ability to upgrade to version 15.0.874.102 is enabled whereas previously it was not, and 2) now the SSL problem goes away. However, rebooting did NOT work on another MBP. I would love to hear an explanation of how this funky release was tested.

Same problem on my bank website with GC version xxx.106. Safari handles it fine.

same here, chrome 15.0.874.106
gives warning when visiting my banking website, was working before. when I look at the certificates details, it is "valid" and the dates are correct. systemclock is also correct.

works in every other browser without problem.

I had the same issue. Delete cookies and cache, restart Chrome and u are ready to go. open the "wrench" menu > Preferences > Under the Hood > Privacy > Clear Browsing Data...  Check the "Empty the cache" box
and click the "Clear Browsing Data" button.

Hi everyone, 

Thanks for your reports on this! We're aware of this issue and a fix is already on the way. Please see http://crbug.com/101555 for the details and cause of this issue. You can click on the star in the left corner of the crbug link to be notified of updates on when the fix will arrive, but we don't need any additional examples since we've tracked down the cause. 

In the interim, as praffo mentioned (thanks praffo!), the workaround is to empty the cache by going to the Wrench menu -> Preferences -> Under the Hood -> Privacy > Clear Browsing Data...  Check the "Empty the cache" box and click the "Clear Browsing Data" button.

Thanks!
Toni

The fix of deleting the cache did not work for me.  

A little history on how I stumbled on to this.  I was doing some testing at work, and set my clock ahead to 2014, past the date on gmail's cert..... got a bunch of errors about it.  Then I reset my clock back to the correct time... and the errors didn't go away.  The cert still says it's valid from 2011 to 2013, but chrome won't respect it.

Is there another workaround for this?  I currently can't use Chrome to get to Gmail or a few other HTTPS sites (probably all the ones open in tabs when I messed with my clock).  IE works just fine at those sites, though it pains me to use it.

Follow up - I was able to get this fixed on my own, thankfully.  I went to reinstall Chrome, to see if that would fix the problem, and it told me I had to close any open Chrome windows... which was weird, because I already had.  So I opened up TaskManager, and it showed me like 8 Chrome processes still running.   I killed them, and then reopened Chrome, and the problem went away.

I would suggest for anyone who has this bug, to try the deleting cache fix, and then make sure you close completely out of Chrome, including checking Task Manager for hidden processes.   Rebooting would also work.  Then restart Chrome.
