Currently Firefox for Android does an unnecessary extra XHR when adding a certificate error override. The docshell already has the information necessary to add the appropriate override (via failedChannel.securityInfo).

Before this patch, Firefox for Android (and GeckoView) would make an extra
(unnecessary) XHR to gather the information it needed to add a certificate error
override. However, the docShell already has the required information (via
failedChannel.securityInfo), so this patch makes it so.
