I think firefox throws a tiz because it is a self signed cert (they certify their own certificate). I get the same thing for the self signed cert I use on our web server (company access only) and on my router.

The whole point of certificates is trust. If anyone can issue a self signed certificate, then it's essentially useless for a signature and I wouldn't want to trust it for encryption either. I used to use Thawte certificates, with their "web of trust". I had to verify my ID to qualify my certificate for signatures.
