SSL Certificate (Prevent Browser Pop up)


I am looking into buying a SSL certificate for one of my domains. However, last time when I bought a standard SSL certificate from godaddy, every time my site was visited for the first time, the browser certificate pop-up showed up. I am wondering how come that is not the case with, or bank of america's website. They directly go to https without the need to verify their certificates. What kind of a certificate do I need to buy ? Where should i buy certificates that the browsers are automatically familiar with ?

If you bought an official SSL certificate, you should not get the popup with most browsers.  Likely you have to install a certificate chains file from your provider.  See GoDaddy or where ever else you get it from to provide the file and documentation for your web server.
