Doesn't seem related to XUL...  Either a bug in the error page or in the browser UI.

In a related issue, if you perform steps 1-4 in the original bug report, and then click on "I understand the Risks" (this works) and then "Add Exeption" button (this doesn't), nothing happens.  Refreshing the page both via right-click/Reload and CTRL-R do resolve the problem for this untrusted connection.
I've only seen this on a vcenter 5.50b web interface (it may be the first such page I've tried to move prio to clicking 'Add Exception.'
This is in Firefox version 29.0 running on Windows 7 x64 Pro.
A little update: on the current Nightly build, I can’t drag out the tab with Untrusted Connection warning, but clicking on the “Get me out of here” button worked.
