Although getting access to the admin tools will be nice, I would rather see effort spent on Firefox accessibility.  I have been running Linux for years, so doing admin tasks in the terminal isn't a problem for me while I have web sites I can't access in Linux yet.
To answer your problem, use the ntpdate command to set your time with a ntp server.  If you don't want to do it that way, use the date command in a terminal to set the date.

To learn more, man date or man ntpdate.
