is it possible to do active probing on installed certificates without showing a certificate warning? maybe hidden in an iframe or popup or using webrtc. everything that could load if the certificate is installed and be blocked otherwise.
if possible it could be misused to find out if a user is vulnerable to a hiden mitm attack.
users of goagent, shaddow socks and cooperate content filters could be vulnerable.

Tor Browser doesn't use the system cert store and instead ships with it's own. Any user that alters the preinstalled certificate list in any way is on their own, and should do so understanding the implications thereof.
