Gmail can't get into my gmail account

I can't seem to get into my gmail
The time and date of my computer is correct, so why is this happining.

Secure Connection Failed



www.google.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because it is self signed.
The certificate is only valid for google.com

(Error code: sec_error_untrusted_issuer)

How do I get it working again, it never happened before.

Firefox will not display a site with an invalid cert unlesss you set an exception for the site.
You should see and option to visit the site regardless of the security implications, select it an follow the instructions.
