User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a) Gecko/20040512 Firefox/0.8.0+
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a) Gecko/20040512 Firefox/0.8.0+

If you visit any secure site whereby the site SSL certificate was signed by an
unrecognized root CA, Firefox hangs indefinitely, instead of displaying the
security alert.  This problem exists on all builds from the week of May 2nd and
onwards.  This problem occurs on both Windox XP and Windows 2000.  Other
operating systems are likely also affected.  This bug does not exist in build
Gecko/20040422 Firefox/0.8.0+ or older.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit the site: https://www.fortify.net/sslcheck.html
2. That's it.  Firefox hands and must be terminated using Task Manager
3. 

Actual Results:  
Firefox develops rigor mortis and must be cremated using Task Manager

Expected Results:  
Firefox should display a security alert and remain operational.
