View server certificate in Thunderbird, a 11yo request.

While I was configuring the certificate for my mail server, I wanted to check if everything works fine in Thunderbird. It turns out that one cannot check the server certificates in Thunderbird. With a simple web search, I found a post from August 2006, i.e. more than 11 years ago, with the same question. The answer was that it was not possible and no extension doing it exists. I asked to see if things changed since them and the answer is no. This process is very simple in Firefox.

Check certificate #1
Check certificate #2
Check certificate #3
Check certificate #4

In my opinion, this should be a critical feature to have.
