SSL = Secure Sockets Layer and is part of the Transport Layer security in a network. To fully understand what it does, you would need to understand the layer structure of networks. If you want to, you can read more about TLS and SSL here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transport_Layer_Security Since the validity of many websites is checked using Certificates and these are time/date stamped, it's important to make sure that your system clock is set correctly. If the date is set incorrectly, you may well see SSL errors because the date stamp on a certificate does not match the date reported by your system. The first thing to do is to check that your date and time are correct and then retry.

I tried your suggestions, but no use. I am using opera and chrome, but I don't like them as firefox. My problem is not solved.

go to start--run--then type %APPDATA%\Mozilla\ then hit enter go to your profile and delete cert8.db, delete this file while firefox is closed. ssl_erro in firefox cause by the browser doesn't initialize the browser's secuity component due to corrupted cert8.db or it is read only.
