When I set the time and date of my Linux to old, In browsing some HTTPS site it can not open the website, my question is: Is there any extension that neutralizes the error clock is behind error?

Or any software for linux that can set timezone and time fake for apps?
thanks in advance

What I have tried:

I did not have any thing, it is a question.

The simple solution is: set your system clock to the current time and let the OS keep it accurate via an internet time server.

The only common reason for changing the date and / or time is to fool software licences into thinking they are still valid - and that's not a good thing to start doing (or admitting to) in a forum full of volunteers who mostly get paid to produce software and have a financial interest in licences being kept up to date ...

Thanks very much, Surely we should pay for license softwares.

That is not the only common reason. Another reason is to access a site that in most browsers is blocked due to HSTS restrictions just because the certificate expired. The browsers are a bit too stupid and do not offer the traditional bypassing link. Instead, I am forced to change the OS time just for the browser to believe that the certificate did not expire, and let me in.

This was already answered and accepted back in May this year. Please stick to current questions where help is needed.

Sorry, I thought I was adding a comment instead of a solution.
