Turn off Secure Connection Failed in Firefox 3

Secure Connection Failed
Hostname uses an invalid security certificate.
The certificate is only valid for *example.org
(Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)

Firefox 3 produces this error a lot for me. And I really hate it.

in about:config set:
browser.ssl_override_behavior = 2
This will fetch the cert (rather than asking to click to download it which is stupid - if you want it it means two clicks, if you don’t then cancel - besides, surely it’s downloaded the certificate already since it says it is insecure!)

browser.xul.error_pages.expert_bad_cert = true
display alert rather than staying on the previous page
