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.

Huge issue

Working in IT security this has become a bit annoyence to me. None of the devices which we connect to have valid certs so having to click through it each time sucks. As techies we manage to figure it out. End users ive found are at a loss and will give up unless told what to do.

Also when managing multiple devices, even though i tell firefox to remember the certs, it keeps forgetting them, and once in a while will block me out of a site until i clear all my certs for those devices.

This should be a major issue to revisit for the next point release.
