I asked this question last night just before going to bed. In summary, the question was "Why does my browser ask me before it will make an HTTPS connection?"
I've got two answers now, but both have answered a different question, "What possible reasons do browsers have for warning before entering some HTTPS connections?"
I've edited the question to clarify that, yes, the situation is insane, but I imagine it's too late now, as my question now has two upvoted (but wrong) answers.
What should I do? I don't want to have the answers deleted, as they are good answers, just to the wrong question. How about I instead edit the question to match the answers and then re-ask my original question?
UPDATE: I've rewritten the original question. I'll re-ask at a later date, making clear I'm talking about all HTTPS links and that I'm talking about any browser that does this.
