i, too, am much enjoying ventura over previous browsers.  that said, i 
posted this query to shr-user originally, but got no answers, so i thought 
i'd try here.  hope that's OK.

i had thought i was having a problem with ventura and https pages, because 
in menu -> URL, the https drop-down doesn't select (i click it, but it 
keeps coming up http), plus i couldn't follow a link to an https page i 
wanted (my webmail service).

but it seems that https links are fine provided the certificate is 
properly signed; it's only that i run my own webmail service and the 
certificate is self-signed.  is there any way to tell ventura not to check 
the certificate chain, but just to load the page?
