"Unknown Certificate" Dialog Too Big When Using Increased Font Size (Accessibility)

When connecting with a server with e.g. a homebrewn or invalid certificate, the info dialogue displayed is too big even on a 1080p screen if increased font size is selected. The "OK" and "Cancel" buttons cannot be read.

This could be solved by embedding the group boxes into a scrollable widget.

For replication:

  • Linux (but most likely OS independent)
  • UI: GNOME 3.22
  • Font Scaling Factor: 1.10 (use TweakUI -> Fonts)
  • Font Size: 13pt (use TweakUI -> Fonts)

These settings are not actually that big. I personally find the behaviour of the dialogue box quite annoying. I can imagine how annoying it must be for someone who has to use even bigger fonts. By the way: The same issue might occur in other large info boxes like the one in Menu Help->About.
