Given the amount of reactions to the Symantec distrust on Nightly and the likelihood that sites will continue to be broken into the beta cycle (and a possible long tail staying broken in release), we want to add more context to certificate error pages that result from the Symantec distrust.

Meridel added new copy here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1PGZFR5fpXAjwJ8B3zg7wmZENYrDL3gWj9qmetJC2XFk/edit#bookmark=id.scha6getph5

which is pending review by Wayne.
Johann, not sure if this would fall within this task - I just got stuck due to the size of the frame with a distrust warning and no option to get to the buttons: https://screenshots.firefox.com/UJZpXJEAuTyvCgZS/contact.ebay.com.au
