If you are getting security certificate errors in FF
type about:config in the address bar
and search for
make sure it is set to true
this will allow you to create an exception to the security certificate.
restart FF and relogin
Thanks bro, was wondering about this...
Really not sure why this is happening to anyone :-/
it's a valid certificate, you shouldn't need to set up an exception at all..

The certificate seems valid, but the intermediate certificate probably hasn't been installed on the web server.

so your solution is to say there is no problem - thx.
As if you'd know anything about this. (Take no offense, but this is not the first time you jump around a thread saying "I don't see the problem, there is no problem.")

The image attached proved the certificate was indeed valid. Stating something is not a problem for me is not denial of the existence of a problem, acknowledged by stating I simply wasn't sure why it was happening at that time.

Though you can settup security exceptions in most cases via creating a prism application direct to the security certificate manager, downloading the site certificate through that, and then manually copying it over to the prism app folder where you want the exception, this did not work with quakelive at first due to the way it was redirecting, despite the certificate being valid prism linked it to the wrong url and invalidated it. It is a problem I reported to Radix the day the new system went into place, before even seeing this thread, and it was rapidly sorted out, the prism plugin does work if you go to the effort of creating and copying over a cert_override.txt. (Or follow the instructions in post 6 of this thread, as kanzo kindly provided the file)
Elsewhere I'd posted that though the prism plugin no longer worked without hassle for quakelive, but you can use the stand-alone prism client instead, as that has been updated by mozilla some time ago to actually allow you to control security certificates from within prism properly.
Alternatively you can use the 'create application' option under the tools menu in google chrome for a similar experience with the chrome engine.
If people are still having this problem (excepting prism plugin users), and they've cleared any previously stored certificates for quakelive, then there is a possibility that the CDN is sending the wrong information.

edit: FIRST POST
download: http://pastebin.com/Ug48AZBb, rename to cert_override.txt
or download attached file
copy to firefox profile folder http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/profiles
this will work in prism too if you copy to %APPDATA%\prism\ quake live \ xxxxxxx.default\
