Do anybody have solution for this problem?

Can Mozilla provide any alternative option so as to make the things work properly?

That site works in IE after you dismiss the warning about the certificate being invalid.

Looks like they want you to use IE.
A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Mine has wandered off and I'm out looking for it.

In order to open a website that would give this error I downloaded the latest 2.* version from a binary (Ubuntu user) and started firefox 2.0.12. From there I was able to accept the certificate and open the website. The certificate was automatically transfer to the Beta 3.* version. Good luck! Find better workarounds!

Any news on this one?
Just tried an https connection to an IBM console (HMC of a p570 system) and it was impossible to go further...had to use IE! :(
