How far off was your clock?

If you click on the lock icon & then View Certificate you'll see the
'Period of Validity'
for mail.google.com it's Aug - Nov, so if the clock is off by a few
months - yeah, not surprising the browser wouldn't trust the cert (but
I usually get something about the cert being expired ... but the CA
cert isn't, so if your clock was off by years, maybe that's it?)

If you're on windows it might be worth checking control panel / Date
and Time / Internet Time
and make sure you've got a valid time source configured.  I think the
default is time.windows.com
