Your Connection Is Not Secure

I am at the mall and want to use the Mall WiFi.
FireFox opens with
	"Your Connection Is Not Secure"
               (Dead End)
So what!  I want access!

How do I get past this lunacy (not mine, but Firefox's)?I see nothing to 
circumvent this admonishment.

I opened IE and got immediate access then went back to FireFox to 
browse.  FireFox Stupidity Exemplified.

I would say it is the users stupidity exemplified because the on-screen 
dialog box would have looked something like in this picture:

User is stupid

The user needs to click on the Advanced button and Add Exception to the 
said domain that is either using a invalid certificate or it is not 
configured correctly.  Either way, FF is not to be blamed because it 
only follows the messages it receives from the web server.

Good Guy, ideally we should get the screen you showed, but the screen I 
got when I had OG's problem did not have the "Advanced" button!

OG, if you do not get the advanced button then start Firefox in 
safe-mode, i.e. Restart Firefox with add-ons disabled, and try the 
problem website again. After that follow Good Guy's instructions.

I sure hope the web site IE was willing to talk to wasn't your "bank".
