Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted
identification to prove that you are going to the right place.
However, this site's identity can't be verified.

What Should I Do?
If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could
mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't

It's happening because the project is using a free certificate
provider ( Cacert is not configured in most
browsers as one of the "trusted providers". However, technically,
their certificates do their job just fine. It's a "political" thing.
Certificates are sold by corporations such as Verisign for quite a lot
of money, and the big boys don't like a free provider like Cacert
spoiling their otherwise-captive market. Don't worry, you can accept
the certificate and add it to your browser's list of trusted
providers. Neither Cacert nor the bug tracker site is trying to scam

I've seen this question posted before a few times, so I'll post this
answer in a dedicated thread. HTH.

It's not purely political...

Still having issues:
=== uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate does not come from a trusted source.
The certificate is only valid for <a id="cert_domain_link"

Even when the certs are already installed:
Cleared & reinstalled the certs & lo & behold:
==== uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate expired on 11/19/2010 08:23 PM.

(Error code: sec_error_expired_certificate)
Not valid after:
11/19/2010 20:23:04
(11/20/2010 04:23:04 GMT)

Had to make a temporary exception (again) in order to post to:
[Bug 20250 - freedesktop bug database uses certificate signed by CA not
recognized by Mozilla]
