Firefox SSL Certificates

Using Firefox 3. Very simply, I know that Redhat’s main website (https://www.redhat.com) works perfectly fine. However when I exclude the “www”, and go to the same website: https://redhat.com, apparently something is wrong?

I see Secure Connection Failed. (Should I be concerned???)
So I click the “add exception link…”
… which turns into button …
So I click the “Add Exception…” Button
… which opens a dialog
So I click the “Get Certificate” Button
So I can enable the “Confirm Security Exception” Button, so I can click on that.

Who is the genius who came up with that work flow?

Is this misleading? Confusing? I wonder … but you decide for yourself.

I will simply say it is annoying as hell.
