When there are signed mar checks across Linux (bug 903126) we should disable via preference the certificate attribute checks and the certificate built-in check. I've discussed this with dveditz and he is ok with this.

Hey Brian, since you are still a browser peer can I get you to r+ this? Thanks!

We've been talking about that for a long time :) \o/
I'll leave it to your discretion if you think a security peer should also be involved.

I got dveditz's ok a long time ago to disable this for platforms that have mar signing so it shouldn't be necessary especially since it is already disabled on Windows and Mac.
