When using HTTPS secure connection the SSL certificate, because it is self assigned, causes the browser to report the connection as unsafe and cannot be trusted (or in some cases that it has expired see:http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=50694). 

The user needs to add an exception for this and continue (or create there own certificate), but that isn't mentioned anywhere in the documentation.

How to repeat:
Connect to the monitor with:
https://localhost:18443/ instead of http://localhost:18080/

Suggested fix:
Mention this in the manual somewhere.

I've added a note on this to the intro material for the initial connection to the dashboard
