Thanks to all who answered and especially Stuart for the helpful
explanation of the IE7 certificate phenomenon.
I have FF 22.214.171.124 on Linux, decided to remove the Barlaeus cert from my
store and retry the url. FF said only that there was a cert that wasn't
trusted and asked me what I wanted to do - stop, install for the session
or install permanently - no hassle. I presume that the behavior shown by
the Windows FF version conforms with certificate Windows policy.
FWIW use https not for certified authentication, but purely to encrypt
all traffic between the site and the client; it is webmail, after all.
We insist on 128 bits or better encryption to ensure a minimum of
protection against cracking connections - some older browsers can't cope
