Certificates also have a date range for which they are valid. It's routine in when developing with certificates, to make them have an "infinite" (i.e. 10 years+) shelf life -- one less thing to hassle with.

But modern browsers are now starting to flag those certificates that are more than a year old. The current pressure is that certificates should be renewed each year.

Let's Encrypt, a very popular free certificate provider, issues certificates that are valid for only 90 days, but also has procedures with example code and strongly encourages sites to auto renew.

Sooner or later Firefox and/or chrome will start to refuse to connect to these http site.
The browsers are kinder to sites with no certificate, than to sites with untrusted certificates. At least in Safari, you have to click through several dialogs and enter your password to enter a site with any kind of certificate problem.

This is a good thing.

But in the end, the browsers won't deny you to an HTTP site.
