Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008051206 Firefox/3.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008051206 Firefox/3.0

From the Secure Connection Failed window; select 'Or you can add an exception…' then 'Add exception'. The 'Add Security Exception' pop-up window appears. Clicking on 'Get Certificate...' crashes Firefox 3beta for me (on https://www.paypalcreditcard.co.uk).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to https://www.paypalcreditcard.co.uk
2. From the Secure Connection Failed window; select 'Or you can add an exception…' then 'Add exception'
3. Click 'Get Certificate...'

Actual Results:  
Microsoft application error window. Closing this closes all Firefox windows.

Expected Results:  
Had to restart Firefox 3beta.

Not crashed, but displayed certificate details.

I confirm this causes a crash for me too (though I need a step 4) View certificate) and the crash stack shows it to be a dup of bug 433594
