User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:6.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/6.0
Build ID: 20110713171652

Steps to reproduce:

When browsing to https://bugs.mageia.org, the HTTPS certificate is refused. The certificate display window bears an uninformative message : "Could not verify the certificate for unknown reasons". This is totally unhelpful and doesn't let me make an informed decision about this certificate.

(screenshot attached)



Expected results:

Explanation of the actual error/failure when verifying the certificate.
