I have been seeing more security warnings of late, indicating that there is some sort of problem with a website / host, such as deprecated TLS, an invalid certificate, etc.

While this is good, I'd love to see something in place that would make it a lot easier to share this info with the people in charge of the website, i.e., those who can do something about it.

If I know that the owner / host would like to know that their website is inaccessible to people with updated browsers -- such as small businesses, non-profits, or hobbyists -- I will take screenshots of the alert(s) and email it to them.

I wonder if there is a better way, and something that could better inform the people on the backend.

I don't have a specific recommendation of what to do, but maybe some kind of "share" button that could automatically generate a message / screenshot / instructions for the owners & hosts.

What do you all think?

Tossing in an additional thought...

The Firefox warning says, "You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem."

Is there anyway that Firefox can help a user identify the "administrator," especially when the typical route of identifying a contact -- the site itself -- is no longer accessible? And what if there are different layers of people, e.g., blog author, webmaster, service provider, etc.? Can the geeky folks behind Firefox do some hand-holding or offer some potential leads to the users, as well as help craft appropriate messaging to the people depending in their level of responsibility. Or their geekiness? (I'm thinking maybe WHOIS/registrant data.)
