I'm using some private server with a self-signed certificate for https connections.

Firefox 25.0 warns me about the certificate being untrusted every time.

For some reason, I can't make it remember my choice and I have to confirm it every time :(

Which is risky, because after doing this a few hundred times, I'm now doing this semi-automatically without inspecting the actual details. So in case there actually is an eavesdropper or otherwise malicious certificate involved, I will probably accept it blindly :(

Is there a way around this??

This looks like Remember Certificate Exception. Are you using the most up to date version? – Doktoro Reichard Nov 7 '13 at 17:55
Have you tried getting the certificate and importing it? If that doesn't work, what error do you get? – mpez0 Nov 7 '13 at 18:36
@Doktoro Reichard I'm using the latest Firefox version (currently version 25). Do you mean I need to install some add-on for this? If that works, it's ok with me, but.. seriously? – Sheldon Pinkman Nov 8 '13 at 9:29
@mpez0 When I click "Get Certificate", I'm getting the error as displayed above in the screenshot ("Unknown Identity" etc). How do you mean "importing" it? What/where? (isn't that what I'm trying to do here, but Firefox won't let me?) – Sheldon Pinkman Nov 8 '13 at 9:31
@Sheldon I never saw your screen in Firefox, rather there is an addon that enables you to override default SSL configuration that resembles that screen, hence the link and suggestion. – Doktoro Reichard Nov 8 '13 at 18:41
