Disabling the Untrusted Connection page in Mozilla Firefox

When you access OpsCenter in Mozilla Firefox, you may see the following Untrusted Connection page.


This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect
securely to <OpsCenterhost.domain>, but we can't confirm 
that your connection is secure.
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 continue.
