Comment(by bazzargh):

 medians: if you're not on Windows, and not techy, you're not going to be
 able to use this workaround - pidgin needs to be built with the 'nss'
 library for the solution to work and on linux it often isn't; if you need
 help beyond this please contact the pidgin support list. No, I don't
 develop mbpurple or pidign.

 Attachments can be downloaded from their pages: look at the bottom of the
 page and it says 'Download in original format'.

 To export from Firefox: open preferences, choose 'Advanced', under that
 select 'Encryption', and click 'View Certificates'. This opens the
 'Certificate Manager' dialog. Now choose 'Authorities' (these are the 'CA'
 certificates we've been discussing). Scroll down through this list until
 you reach 'Equifax Secure Inc' - you should see the 'Equifax Secure Global
 eBusiness CA-1' listed there. Select that and click 'export' and choose
 the format 'X.509 Certificate (PEM)'.

 Either way you obtain the certificate, save it in C:\Program Files\Pidgin
 \ca-certs\EquifaxSecureGlobaleBusinessCA-1.pem as I mentioned above.

 Hope this helps.
