Certificate issues?

Each time I open a thread tonight, I get a pop-up saying the certificate is invalid for "static.ak.facebook.com."

What's up with that? Should I accept it or is it a Facebook spyware thing or what?

1. It's not happening to me. This may be why it's happening to you:

Facebook puts cookies on your computer that follow every following visit to other websites. So some of us have decided to stop it. In my browser, my adblock add-on restricts javascript.

It does not allow popup, advertising, etc., whether I am signed in or not, or anywhere else. Through my ad-block, I have set Facebook to 'forbidden.' I also restricted it in my browser preferences.

Try that and see if it goes away. Good luck.

2. Are you using Safari? I am, and I'm getting it too

I think it's due to the Facebook link in OPs.

Ori was; the FB link is no longer showing up

3. I got this a few times yesterday as well.

I wasn't sure what they were, so I just *canceled*.
