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.

There is a usability issue - the site looks broken and not many people would wait to read the text.

It may be, but not in the same way that "page cannopt be found" means that the page is not there.

When I first moved to the Firefox 3 betas, it took me a while to realise that it was improperly signed sites causing the issue and NOT that the site was down.

A page similar to the the red page "potential malicious site page" would have been better as it does not look the same as a 404.
