Your decision to drop support for self-signed certificates is causing problems all around in LANs, VPNs, and domain networks both home and corporate which employ SSL but use self-signed certs. Despite it being understanding that it is generally ill-advised to access sites with such problems, further deciding that this minority of exceptions should be abandoned altogether in a world web full of so many shades of grey and complex setups is not a responsible decision.
Please implement methods for us to be able to coexist with these updates, as suddenly dropping support for the plenthora of routers, domains, websites and other sources using such a setup, many of which cannot be quickly updated or even at all, is a big problem.
The internet engineering taskforce has not issued any such directives, nor have broader plans to drop support for self-signed certificates been announced. In the lack of a transitioning climate away from this setup or any plans to do so, Mozilla has unilaterally decided to remove support.
Please remember that you have a large userbase and thus a responsibility to keep available means of access that are in common use by the world. Self-signed certificates still very much play a role in the ecosystem, and they will continue to exist for as long as there is a need for encryption on intranets.
