Try to add the exception manually in the Certificate Manager.

This worked for me. Thanks.

Going through the preferences to add a certificate is a workaround and not intuitive to users. The Add Exceptions button used to bring up a popup in Firefox version 3.5.9 that allowed you to add an exception for the server:port in my case. Is there a way to get the Add Exception button to work in Firefox version 3.6.12, it currently does nothing which is totally confusing to the user.
