    Using Opera 9.64 and getting this warning on my banking site. Issuer of the certificate is Entrust. When logging in and for some time thereafter the padlock is ticked and the High Assurance Security button in the address bar is green and the connection is confirmed as secure as it should be. However after doing some transactions a question mark is shown in the address bar and clicking on it displays the warning.
    Apparently this is due to Opera's 15 sec. timeout to retrieve the certificate revocation list. My connection is reasonably fast so it can't be that.
    Rather disappointing and one hardly dares to do banking with Opera. I will try in Firefox.
    This irritating problem seems to affect many users....
