IE8 - viewing site certificate details
When using https:// and there is a problem with a site's certificate, and
IE8 displays a page telling me so, how can I check the certificate details
before the site is loaded to my browser.
The only method I have found so far is to continue to the site anyway, and

content before I am comfortable about the site's identity, although it does
give me access to the 'red' address bar from which I can check the
This problem arose for me because a recently renewed certificate was issued
for an incorrect server name.
