When I tell Firefox that a certificate is valid I would like Firefox to treat the certificate as valid. Is there an about:config preference that I can set?
There isn't an about:config option for this. What you can do is create a CA certificate, import it into Firefox (about:preferences -> Advanced - > Certificates -> View Certificates -> Authorities -> Import), and use that CA to issue your server certificates.
Thanks for your reply but you are incorrectly assuming that the exceptions are for servers that I control.
It is objectively wrong for Firefox to claim that a connection is not secure simply because an exception has been made. For example, a manually verified self-signed cert is not insecure.
