The error popup you get should have three radio buttons:
        Accept this certificate permanently
        Accept this certificate temporarily for this session
        Do not accept this certificate and do not connect to this Web

Select either the first button (if you are truly convinced that you have
not been led to a bogus site) or the second button (if you are not
sure).  Then select the OK button.  (I would not attempt any financial
transactions in the second case.)
