    Firefox Certificate Errors

    I'm not holding out much hope on this one as I haven't been able to find an answer anywhere else on the net, but perhaps one of you brilliant lot has found a solution.

    As I'm sure some of you are aware, trying to access certain secure sites in Firefox through proxy is impossible. You get an error telling you the certificate is invalid, but when you try to add an exception it either then tells you the certificate is valid, or makes no difference and you still get the error (without ever being able to access the site).

    Has anybody found a way around this?

    Tried that before but it didn't work (the setting is still on 'true' now)
