User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130

Since it's all too common to run across expired certificates it would be nice if
the "Server Certificate Expired" warning/popup dialog would have an
option/checkbox along the lines of "do not show this message in the future..."
or similiar.  I frequently use several mail/site servers with expired
certificates and constantly have to click through the "Server Certificate
Expired" message when sending or recieving mail...  Thankfully I only have to do
this the first time I send or recieve to these servers, however, it would
nonetheless be nice if Mozilla could remember my answer permanently and avoid
constantly having to revisit the warning(s) on consecutive boots.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. visit site with expired certificate...
2. use mail server with expired certificate...

Actual Results:  
"Server Certificate Expired" dialog pops up with no option to disable it for
future visits beyond the current Mozilla session.

Expected Results:  
Have a "do not show this message in the future..." or similiar option to more
permanently remember one's answer globally or site specific.
AFAIK this is wontfix -> PSM

Agreed. Wontfix. The proper procedure is for the server administrator to renew
the server certificate.
