Description tests for various possible SSL certificate problems.

WebPositive should show an error on all these pages, but doesn't always. We should review how we trigger certificate validation errors.

I'd also suggest to rethink the way the user is notified of such problems - going to causes a whole bunch of warnings to pop-up, while, say, Firefox on Linux doesn't do such things, and when a problematic page is attempted to be loaded it shows a warnings on that page, not as a separate pop-up, which I personally consider to be more user-friendly.

I just modified the way this error is handled so the web browser (instead of HaikuWebKit itself) can intercept the error and do whatever it wants with it (including showing the error inside the page area, I guess).

However, with the current solution of an alert, it looks like we don't get things right anyway, as the dashboard will never show "failure" but instead will keep spinning forever on the failed pages?

We should also let Web+ show a keylock somewhere or colorize the address bar or something for unsecure pages.
