User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050519 Camino/0.8+

If https is required on the built-in web server in a Linksys router it is
impossible to configure the router with Camino because Linksys apparently uses
the same certificate for all their routers. Camino gives an error which says: 

"You have received an invalid certificate.  Please contact the server
administrator or email correspondent and give them the following information:

Your certificate contains the same serial number as another certificate issued
by the certificate authority.  Please get a new certificate containing a unique
serial number." 

This seems fine, but then the only option is to click the OK button and use a
different browser. Firefox gives a similar warning but allows the user to
override it and accept the invalid certificate either permanently or just for
the current session.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure the built-in web server on a Linksys router to require https.
2. Attempt to connect to the router's web server with Camino
3. Silly rabbit, there is no step 3.

Actual Results:  
Camino refuses to allow connections to the router.

Expected Results:  
Allow the user to override the warning and connect to the router if he or she so
choosed.
i think there have been some changes to the security dialog apis that we need to
make sure we stay current with.

Try with a recent build; Camino now has better cert support.

Also, does this work in Firefox?

This needs re-testing with 1.0a1 or a more recent nightly branch build.
