From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.0rc1)
BuildID:    2002041711

When logging into Hotmail there is a security warning that cannot be turned off.
 Although all options under Preferences -> Privacy and Security -> SSL are
turned off, they are still there.  There is also no checkbox that says "Never
show this alert again" or somthing like that.

I will try to attach a screenshot.

This is on Windows XP Home, Moz 1.0 RC1

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.go to www.hotmail.com
2.log in
3.look at the warning and try to find a check box to shut it off

Actual Results:  The warning appears everytime you log in to Hotmail.

Expected Results:  There should be an option to shut off the warning so it does
not happen again.

FYI...this also happens on grc.com and going to Shields UP! and clicking on
either Test my shields! or Probe my ports!.  Again...there is no option to shut
it off.

Marking wontfix. The dialog box appearing in comment #1 is as per the spec. This 
warning is designed so that it cannot be turned off. However, the warning that I 
am seeing logging into hotmail with the 4/28 build gives a different warning 
with different wording, which can be turned off.
