firefox complaint

I tend to use the secure web interface that my webhost provides for checking my email rather than go through the effort of configuring an email client on my computer. (It must be some sort of commitment thing).

Anyhow, while the interface is on an encrypted URL within my domain the security certificate belongs to dreamhost.com. This triggers a domain name mismatch warning in Firefox each time I check my mail. I did some poking (and googling) around to see if there was a way to store that I have accepted the mismatched cert but it doesn’t seem to be possible. I did come across this thread in a readlist.com archive but responses seemed to come more from the “I don’t think you need to do this” point of view. Perhaps I’m missing something but to me it makes sense to add a “don’t ask me again for this domain” checkbox (or the like) on the dialog. There’s a freakin’ “ok” button that accepts the certificate on a per session basis so obviously the message is a warning.

Any ideas or is this just another nudge for me to get on with it and install Thunderbird?

update: Solved. The Remember Mismatched Domains extension is over here:

    I agree with you. The Post responses were sort of useless. I don’t want to fix it on the server side because it is costly and not really neccessary. I want to fix it on the browser side, and just have the browser stop asking me on daily basis whether I want to accept it or not.

    Any lucking finding a fix/hack for IE or Firefox that would do this?

    No luck. Every couple of months I get fed up, google around for a workaround, find none and curse the folks who have decided to make checking my email over a secure connection so freakin’ incovenient.

    Judging by my server logs you and I aren’t alone in our frustration…
