    hi,

    i frequently download files from a site that uses an unsigned certificate. I think that means they use SSL/https, but haven't paid for their certificate, they just made their own one.

    Anyway, I can still view the site in safari, but I can't download any files from it. The downloads just fail, with no option to override the obvious security mechanism.

    Can anyone help me?

    use another browser when you want to download the files?

    No clue how. Maybe you need a different URL.
