User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:5.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/5.0.1
Build ID: 20110707182747

Steps to reproduce:

Nothing, maybe started Firefox Sync...

Actual results:

For no reason, sync started encountering problems,
Firefox started saying many sites are untrusted including the Mozilla mainpage and Bugzilla,
and it started giving me Secure Connection failures.

Expected results:

Nothing at all, it should have been smooth browsing.
Synch doesn't work if the connection can't be encrypted.
The real issue is the https problem.

That are 3 reasons why this can happen:
a) someone attacks you (MITM attack)
b) your system date is wrong
c) your Firefox profile is broken (all root certificates are untrusted)

Please provide the exact error message that you get. We only need the "technical details" part from the error message.
Is your system date correct (month/year) ?

My apologies, my date/time was indeed wrong. I never noticed that. That you very much for your time. I'm sorry for my blunder.
The certificates for the encryption have an expire date and if you set your date in the future, all certificates will be rejected because they seem to be expired.
