Mozilla & Gecko clones Firefox 3.0, released not too long ago, was generally well-received. It added a load of new features, while also providing much-needed speed improvements and better memory management. Some new features, however, have met more resistance - one of them is the rather complicated user interface thrown at users when they reach a website with an invalid or expired SSL certificate.

Fewer popups, beautify the check box

I have no problem with the general approach taken in Firefox3. I do have a problem in that I have to click on 4 separate pop-ups to allow me access to a website I know is good.

What's wrong with having one pop-up with multiple check boxes? I suspect that someone prefers the appearance of buttons to check boxes and decided that annoying people with multiple pop-ups was better than having this one big ugly pop-up. Perhaps the solution would be prettier check boxes.
