Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:12.0a2) Gecko/20120307 Firefox/12.0a2
(Users have also reported this in Firefox 11)

STR:
1. Click the link in the URL field of this bug, see a message saying it "has an invalid security certificate".
2. Attempt to add an exception.

Actual results:
No exception dialog appears and the error console shows no errors when either clicking on the [add an exception] inline button, or entering the following command:
/goto-url x-cz-command:ssl-exception%20irc.nix.co.il%209999%20true

Expected results:
Exception dialog appears to enable connecting over SSL to the IRC server.

Workaround:
Visit https://irc.nix.co.il:9999 in Firefox and add the exception through the browser.

The workaround in the bug didn't work for me, running chatzailla as standalone xulrunner application (from chatzilla-0.9.87-5.1450hg.fc17.noarch). 

My workaround was to type "/ssl-exception irc.nix.co.il 9999% true" command to force the SSL Exception dialog to appear.

This was fixed in ChatZilla 0.9.88.2, so that makes sense. Update CZ and it should work. :-)
