comment It is safe to buy a domain if I get this message in Firefox?
"If it helps, I'm running a unix like system, so can't be a keylogger or a hoax or a fishing attack." - oh yes it can (though the symptom you describe is much more likely to be a badly written website)

comment Is there a way to negotiate a secret between 2 parties with no prior knowledge?
I think it is really a case of whether or not you think an active attack is an acceptable risk. In an organisation's network, or some part of it, the infrastructure might be judged sufficiently difficult to actively attack. Regardless it is generally a good idea to require that an active attack is used. An active attack is typically much more difficult to do, and to conceal, than a passive one. I'm a big fan of opportunistic encryption (e.g. SSH style) for this reason.
