1.) With all SSL prefs on, visit the above low grade encryption site.
2.) Note the warning of low-grade encryption.
3.) Click on another secure link, such as "Secure Site" in the upper left, or 
visit https://www.verisign.com.
What happens: A dialog box appears stating that I am entering a secure site.
What is expected: No warning should be necessary, since I was coming from a 
secure site.

Well, if "low security" deserves an extra warning, I thought this means "a low
security site is not the same as a secure site".

How would a user ever know, that he is no longer surfing a low security site,
but has entered a high security site?

When I worked on bug 130949, I explicitly implemented this behaviour.

Therefore I think this is not a bug, but rather we should discuss what behaviour
we want, because when I worked on bug 130949, I did not have a reference what
the intended behaviour is, but jused my own judgement :)

Marking works for me. Kaie's reasoning is OK with me.
