Since the domains causing most of the problems with this are usually
well known, maybe a better experience without accepting all those unsafe
certs could be turning that boolean preference into a list of regexp and
only skipping this check to the domains matching any of the regexp in
the list.

That way known annoyers can be added to the list, and certs from others
would still require a manual waiver. You could even have the original
unsafe_ssl_certs behaviour using the *.* regexp.

What do you think?
