Sometimes when I send an email a dialog box for examining an Unknown Authority
for a Certificate comes up.
I look at it, I am aware that it is correct, and I want to accept it as the cert
from here on out. (This bug is not an issue in TB, BTW.)

The "Temporarily Accept" choice will work, but the permanent one just has the
dialog come right back up.

I will post Screenshot soon and the info for the cert.

I can reproduce on a regular basis, but I think there is a necessary time delay
for the temporary setting to last. Once it is no longer active as a temporary
"OK", I get the error.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  
Dialog comes rigth back up for me to accept cert

Expected Results:  
If I say I allow it permanently, it should allow it permanently.
no security bug, looks more like a problem with crypto

Did it work correctly with older versions of Mozilla.
In other words, is this bug a regression?
