Is your version of Google Chrome up to date? When I visit a site with
an untrusted certificate I get a warning and a "Proceed anyway" button
which is actually easier than having to download and add an exception
in Firefox.

And can you inspect the certificate and determine what about it's
saying is untrusted? (certificate authority, date, etc)

FWIW I use Google Chrome in 12.04 on Google sites daily and have never
seen this problem.
