We are not gonna by default.. Break the web or cause performance regressions.. The preferences are there.. Flip them if it suites you..

However your tips and suggestions are rejected.

Peace!

That isn't a bug.. It is by design that most sec errors can't be bypassed.

With Firefox ESR, the same web page presents the exceptions tab.
I not insert it because the website has now solved its problems.
The bug were also verified by Roytam1.

Ah, but you have failed to take into account one very, very subtle point: Pale Moon is not Firefox. Also, I thought this thread was about Basilisk.
