    This might be a security certificate issue.

    Try using http and not https.

    Yahoo did have a problem with malware recently.

    Didn't work. Strange thing is it's working fine on my laptop. Tried pretty much everything on desktop, cleared cache, cookies, rebooted pc, different browser, date is also fine... is anything else left? I guess it's a local issue now since no problems on laptop.

    Just ignore these warnings by Firefox/IE/Chrome/whatever.

    It only means one thing - the website forgot/refused to pay for a SSL certificate and Firefox didnt get its share from the deal. Every time someone pays for a SSL certificate the major browsers get more monkeys in their papal, hence the huge warning they display, it sort of forces the webmasters to spend money on nothing.

    Moreover, in spite the warning, you're generally more secure on websites with self signed SSL certificate (those that trigger the warning). Because once you pay for a SSL certificate its private keys go directly to the spy agencies (such as NSA), and they can decode your traffic without too much hassle.

    Check your time settings, date, month, timezone settings etc
    OR
    Check your comp battery, it maybe expired, replace it with new one
    OR
    try changing a different windows/linux user account, somtime it maybe a virus/spoofing issue if you are using a router inside your home which is behind a NAT but open to public access and on LAN.
