The site displays, but the certificate appears broken, and the visual
aids for valid SSL connections (lock icon, yellow address bar) are
disabled. The icon in the lower left corner shows a broken lock.
With an invalid SSL certificate, you have exactly the same level of
security as with plain HTTP - even a bit more, since you are immune to
some passive attacks. There is absolutely no reason to behave
Hence the epiphany behavior is correct.
