Steps to reproduce


Repro Steps:

Create an Asp.Net Web Form with a submit button and add the following handler to the click event:

protected void Unnamed1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

Set a breakpoint in the event handler and start the page in IE. (affected versions: 9, 10, 11)
Click the button. The breakpoint is hit as expected. Continue execution.
IE displays the Certificate Error page.
Click “Continue to this website (not recommended).”
The breakpoint is hit again, meaning the browser repeated the POST request.

Expected Results:

When the user clicks "Continue to this website (not recommended).", the browser should request the target page, rather than the page that issued the redirect.

Actual Results:
