Certificate warning should not bring up the main Fiddler window

A simple change request: when I navigate, using Fiddler, to a page that has an untrusted https certificate, I get the popup from Fiddler warning me of the same. I want to get this popup, I don't want to disable it. However, when I click "Yes" on the popup, the main Fiddler window is brought into front, on top of my browser. My environment has a lot of self signed certificates in use on non-production systems, so this is happening quite often.

I propose the popup should work as now, but clicking on the popup should not bring the main Fiddler window up, in case it was minimized or under other windows.

Thanks a lot for your great work on the program.

This is an interesting idea and might be possible with some reworking. However, it might make more sense to have you just configure Fiddler (via FiddlerScript) to ignore certificate errors for the hosts where you're expecting certificate errors (namely, the URLs of your non-production systems) so that you don't get any spurious warnings.

Inside Rules > Customize Rules > OnBeforeRequest, you can do


   if (oSession.HostnameIs("")) oSession["X-IgnoreCertErrors"] = "trust me, I'm a dev!";
