"I understand the risks" missing and no "Open frame in new tab" option

I'm trying to reach a page on the site of Holland's largest and completely trustworthy webstore thru my home wifi. I get an error page from Firefox telling me the connection is untrusted. I'd expect Firefox to give me the "I understand the risks"-option to bypass this error but sadly it doesn't (see screenshot). So I searched internet and it tells me (ao at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/961370) I should right-click the frame and choose "Open frame in new tab" from the context menu. Sadly tho, as this is on my phone, there's no such option present in the right-click-context menu :(

As the right-click procedure also seems like somewhat of a needlessly complicated workaround for the average (digitally illiterate) internet surfer. After all, Mozilla could just implement an unconditionally-always-present "I understand the risks" link in its surf-blocking error pages.

So my question first is: how do I now proceed to the page I wanna visit? And secondly: why doesn't the 'untrusted'-error page ALWAYS provide a risks-understanding link? Regardless whether it's in a(n) (i)frame or not??

Okay the Android Firefox app doesn't give me the option to add a screenshot (nor does it let me select to post this in the 'Android Firefox' section specifically, for that matter). So what is shown in the screenshot I intended to post is that I expanded the technical details section and that in that section the link also is nowhere to be found.
