Details

Te app.update.certs.* prefs define what certs we accept when checking for updates. At the moment, it doesn't compare against any intermediaries - which is apparently relatively common thing for CAs to use and change.
I should note, I don't know what (if any) security impact doing this would have.
Bug 920750 and bug 928489 will remove the cert checks for app update since we will be using mar signing as the method to prevent exploits so resolving as wontfix
