Skip wait for "Accept the Risk and Continue" button

Is there a way to skip the wait for the "Accept the Risk and Continue" button to appear? I assemble and set up copiers for a living. Every single one of them has a self-signed certificate. I see this "Potential security risk ahead" screen dozens of times a day because of this. I understand why I'm seeing it. I understand the importance of a security warning like that. What I would like to do is skip the delay between when you click on advanced and the "Accept risk and continue" button becoming available to be clicked on. That or some way to disable that security warning specifically for self-signed certificates would be ideal.

You can lower this delay for enabling dialogs via about:config (security.dialog_enable_delay), but this is all or nothing and applies to all such dialog, so do not disable it completely. This is to prevent that you click too soon and accidentally skip this warning.

What warnings are there where there would be a risk of accidentally skipping it? Every time I've seen the security page in firefox to skip the warning you have to click advanced then click the skip button.

You can search the source code to see in what case this security delay is used and see that this is about downloading in general and downloading add-ons and network errors (Advanced button) and fast-clicking attacks sensitive prompts including HTTPS-Only Mode.
