Selenium, secure connection failed, security certificate

I am doing some testing with Selenium, and i have a problem.

The site I am testing is a secure site with username and password. And i
have one problem. When i start Selenium tests from a ruby program then a
new browser is opened, and this browser is cleen like a freshly
installed firefox browser.

My problem is that the site I am testing gives this error:

Secure Connection Failed
xxx uses an invalid security certificate.
The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is
unknown.
The certificate is only valid for xxx

(Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)

This stops my test and i also has to accept this every time, it wont
remember that I acceptet it earlyer because it always starts a fresh
cleen firefox browser.

Is there a way to start the regular browser insted. A browser that
remember that i have acceptet this before?

When i start the test from the Selenium IDE then it uses my regular
browser: I want it to use my regular browser when I start it from a ruby
program to. How do I do that?

Hi,

Have you tried this solution -->

http://groups.google.com/group/selenium-ruby/browse_thread/thread/2de7c8518d558f6c/0e1c7cf3866f15f8?fwc=1

The solution is,

Yes. We can able to set the predefined profile.

When start the Selenium RC --> mention ur profile details like this

java -jar selenium-server.jar -firefoxProfileTemplate “C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\4sdo3eff.default”

Thanks Raveendran, setting a special firefox profile for Selenium RC to
use worked!
How about IE? Are there any tricks to go around cert warnings in IE?
