Interesting... in linux 3.0.5 I only get:
www.us.army.mil uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown.

(Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)

When going to: https://www.us.army.mil/suite/login/welcome.html

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/2008121621
Ubuntu/8.04 (hardy)

I wonder if it's a Ubuntu distro version thing... I'll load up a
standard Fx and see if it is any different.

BTW: I did find where to get the certs for those .mil sites;
unfortunately in order to get them I had to use Opera or SM 1.1.14/15pre
as I couldn't get to them via SM 2.0a3pre or Fx: https://crl.gds.disa.mil/
