Bug Description

The Domain Mismatch dialog, that appears when you try to connect to a domain
which isn't using it's own SSL certificate, is not GNOME HIG compliant.

To reproduce, open the following URL:
https://launchpad.ubuntu.com

Attached is a screenshot of the dialog in question.

The correct ordering would possibly be:
[Help] [Cancel] [OK]

https://launchpad.ubuntu.com: https://launchpad.ubuntu.com

That UI comes from seamonkey psm, dup of 110647?

To make this dialog GNOME HIG compliant, the button labels would also have to be changed, and the explanatory text re-worded.

According to the HIG, you should use an affirmative action instead of 'OK' as the button label:

David Farning said this bug as upstream. So I'm confirming it. It still is as new on mozilla's bugzilla.
