I have a bunch of tabs as my home page. One of them has a privately generated SSL certificate.

Normally, I'd be able to go home and have them all load while doing other things. However, the SSL warning prevents all tabs from loading, not just the one with the suspicious SSL certificate.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
See details above.
Actual Results:  
UI is wait for the user rather than doing something useful.

Expected Results:  
Only the tab with the SSL issue should be stalled from loading. An indication should be given to the user, perhaps offering to take them directly to the tab with the problem. All other non-problematic tabs should continue to load.

I think this is major because one problem anywhere in the tabset immediately prevents anything else from happening and breaks the tab metaphor.
To be fixed by bug 327181?
