Steps to reproduce:

I followed this link : https://webmail.no-log.org/

Expected results:

I should have been proposed to enter an exception and be able to go on.

Try with another browser, I tried with IE9 and it displays the same error message. Probably a website issue.

I get the error message but it can be bypassed.
* Try to remove cert8.db in your profile: https://support.mozilla.org/fr/kb/corriger-impossible-lancer-composant-securite#w_fichier-corrompu
* Check you don't have SSL scanning enabled in your security software.

Can you add an exception if you try a new profile ?
