mobile beta doesn't provide a means to bypass sec_error_unknown_issuer

Posted

When accessing a website that would cause firefox to produce a sec_error_unknown_issuer error message, it is possible to view the certificate, accept it, and carry on anyway in the desktop version of firefox.

In the mobile version, this option does not appear to be present

If I view the certificate, there's an option to export it, but that's it. It's possible there's another button in the bottom right of the dialog, but I can't see it because scrolling is disabled.

This should now be fixed in the latest nightly builds, and in the upcoming Firefox 4 beta 2 for Android.

The SSL error page is still not very mobile-friendly (it has very small text). We'll be fixing that in a future version.
