Unknown whether it stores certs that you reject.
I spend a lot of time in hotels, and it is VERY common for me to get one of those popups complaining about certificates when I connect to the hotel WiFi.
I am an almost-complete greenie WRT crypto, which is why I'm here to learn.
What is the proper thing to do when one of those things pops up? (It is NOT a rare event).
I use the "https everywhere" firefox extension on my OSX laptop. I do not access my bank accounts on public WiFi, but I really don't have a choice but to access webmail and gmail. What should I do when I get one of those cert warnings?
