Why does ie tell me bitcoins.org has an invalid srcurity certificate whenever I use a secure(https://)/ encrypted connection? Is this truly a bad certificate or an ie glitch.

Probably because owner of site will not shell out a large amount of money to have that message go away. As I understand it, any site can use https, but only those who pay some substantional amount become "officially recognized" by browsers because their certificate will be issued by a "trusted entity" whereas the certificate at bitcoin.org is selfmade. Somebody please correct me if this should not be correct.

Neither.  It is a self-signed certificate.

These are perfectly valid, but simply do not establish a chain of trust from one of the CA's listed in your browser.

Perhaps the owner could get a free one from StartSSL? It works in most modern browsers in my experience, and is included in the Windows root since Vista iirc.

Would there be possible to make an exception for it? Firefox can do this, you do it once for every site in question.

Agreed, this should be fixed. See also my HTTPS thread here in Meta.
