    Here is the full error message:

    The site's security certificate has expired!

    You attempted to reachm.facebook.com, but the server presented an expired certificate. No information is available to indicate whether that certificate has been compromised since its expiration. This means Chromium cannot guarantee that you are communicating with*m.facebook.com*and not an attacker. Your computer's clock is currently set to Saturday, 28 December 2013 11:41:53. Does that look right? If not, you should correct the error and refresh this page.

    You should not proceed,especially*if you have never seen this warning before for this site.

    Proceed anyway*Back to safety

    Help me understand

    Why are you using a browser to access Facebook? Why not just use the app instead?

    I dont like the always on, zero security and constant notifications from the app.

    Much prefer the mobile version of the website.

    I can log in using desktop mode. I tryed disabeling https mode but still get ssl error when I switch back to mobile version of the site.

    I tried pretty much every combination of http vs https and m. vs www. visiting facebook.com in several browsers on my Note 3 and my desktop PC without any certificate warnings. Whatever the problem is, it's not on Facebook's end.

    BTW, I also refuse to install the Facebook app on my phone for the same reasons you gave.

    I sincerely wish I could help you. The only thing I know about site security certificates is it's an issue that must be fixed via the site- not your phone.
    I could be wrong & if so, someone will gladly point it out. :)

    If its related to the site. I guess people all over the world will experiencing this kind of prob. If u view my picture( my be the same case with op), the expired date is just 2-3 days ago, thats why its not cause of any wrongly date or time setup of the hp.

    I guess guys, op and i have to search for a new certificate. But i myself dunno how to do that.

    I just got the Note 3 about a 1/2 hr ago. Give me a min to see what happens when I go to m.facebook.com.

    For now I'm using the built in browser......BRB

    ETA Ok, I'm on the mobile site of FB now without any security certificate warnings.
    The only thing I can suggest at this point is SETTINGS - GENERAL - APP MANAGER - Select the browser you're using & clear data & cache.

    Ok, looking forward to your finding

    Ive done that and beyond that, I've even flash the hp to default. But still its still there. Fyi scandlex, the cert somehow is like a key to all browser, with one cert it control all browser. Therefore by clear chace of certain browser will not take any effect. Atleast on my case.

    Btw im swapping my cert folder with others, copying theirs. But its not working. If someone know bout cert, cert folder is somewhere in system/etc/security. Thats where all cert are located

    Btw tq scandlex for taking time for checkong on this

    Thanks so much for all the replys and happy new year!

    I am still no closer to finding a fix. I tryed going to app settings and clearing cache and defaults. Uninstalled other browsers. Still nothing.

    I can log in if I use desktop mode so it cant be something to do with battery, system time or any synch issue as the ssl certificate is accepted in desktop mode.

    I guess the next step is to email facebook support as no other sites have this problem as far as I am aware.

    Il post the results up here
