    If you want to know the technical details which make the certificate untrusted, then opening the technical details section might be a smart move. Oct 24, 2012 at 17:07

The date/time on your device maybe invalid.

All SSL certificates have a start and end period. Certificates can be compromised and its a good practice to renew them.

  • It's true this is a possible cause, but it would be more useful to the asker if you could give a brief explanation as to why.

Your mobile provider might be routing everything thru a proxy server that is doing SSL inspection, so it can do content filtering or bandwidth optimisation, which Firefox is detecting as a man-in-the-middle attack.
