Created attachment 564129 [details]
cert01.png

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:7.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/7.0.1
Build ID: 20110928134238

Steps to reproduce:

Visited a site.


Actual results:

Fairly certain this had something to do with content from https://csi.gstatic.com (probably Google Plus +1 button stuff) which broke down momentarily. However upon hitting the site Firefox popped up a new dialog window informing me of a security issue. Unfortunately this window was mostly useless as the certificate encompassed so many Google domains it overflowed off the screen and then some.


Expected results:

While I was able to select the window and select maximize to view the entire content of the certificate, there was no native window option to do so.

It would have been nice if instead of a pop-up this appeared in an overlay or with the content being scrollable at least.

The Google certificate error was only slightly distressing, however it did highlight an issue with the way security warnings are currently displayed within Firefox. Hopefully that can be corrected soon as anyone seeing something similar may find themselves slightly annoyed when they can't reach the view certificate button.

The error pop up shown here is no longer shown by default, since "browser.xul.error_pages.enabled" is now by default true.

However, if it is set to false, this issue still occurs => confirming.
