I have several servers running NW6.5 at SP2 and SP7 with BM 3.8 SP2 and SP5.
All show the same issue.

When trying to access an HTTPS site before authenticating to BorderManager
using IE6 or Firefox, I get redirected to the Bordermanager login page

However, when using IE7, I get an Internet Explorer error page - "Internet
Explorer cannot display the webpage". The address bar still displays the
original HTTPS URL.

Is this a known 'feature' to protect the average user?

Is it 'fixed' by BM 3.9.x?

Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
