Description

Firefox (and other browsers) have created a set of states a site can have in relationship with ssl certificates, and how to communicate that to the user.

Tor Browser has a particular state related to the padlock at the toolbar when it comes to .onion services.

This is something that was discussed under this ticket:

https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/21321

Based on that discussion, we decided that the best solution would be treat .onion sites different when we are communicating these states for .onion sites at Tor Browser.

The work on this ticket is to map all the current states Firefox has for ssl certificates on the padlock, and from there start to build a new way to communicate these states when they are related to a .onion sites.

We start mapping them here:

Is still pending the most difficult part of the work, which is to define what to do for .onion sites on those states.
