If I read you correctly, you need to re-set the hardware clock. It's been quite a while since I've done this, but I'd "man hwclock" and see what it says there,

Re-read the entire thread, looks like everything has been fixed that I can see (even some things not listed in the OP...like FF's overwrite of search engine list).
