I use fedora and cannot surf to SSL sites using Google Chrome.

The site is not loaded - no error message. I can surf to non-SSL sites in Chrome, and can surf to both SSL and non-SSL sites in Firefox.

EDIT: this seems to be something more general to the fedora environemtn as some other interactions with ssl via command line fail too. for example when I use npm (node.js package manager) I need to change the registry to non-ssl

EDIT2: the problem only happens when I'm behind a firewall (and have http proxy configuration). however even inside the firewall firefox works great so I still don't see what is causing this.

is it chrome (from google) or chromium (from fedora 3rd party repo)? what other "interactions" do not work? does firefox incur in the same issue? which releases of fedora and chrome? –  guido Jul 20 '12 at 16:07
    
@guido - chrome from google. "npm install" command line also does not work unless I set the registry to non ssl (npm is node.js package manager). firefox works without any problem with ssl. fedora v16, chrome v18.0.1025.162. also see my latest edit. thanks! –  Yaron Naveh Jul 20 '12 at 21:19
    
check if your npm problem is this one: stackoverflow.com/questions/9626990/… ; and try chromium from here fedoraproject.org/wiki/Chromium ; cannot help any more without more info –  guido Jul 21 '12 at 9:25

I have had the same issue. In the error message, Chrome was informing me I was presenting a certificate that did not existed yet, with the time of my computer printed out. It turned out I messed up with the sync command line trying to solve a suspend/resume issue, and the time of my laptop was back to 2008. Setting back the date to today's time solved it.

I hope this helps.
