Onion certificates are an oxymoron. The onion address
is self-validating. It is a bug that web browsers apply
the logic of X.509 to Tor addresses - they shouldn't
check certificates at all, or at best pin down the
public key contained in the certificate.

But there's a bigger problem: Facebook has started
hosting and linking images and media on a clearnet
site. The effect is that new avenues for locating
Facebook users are introduced.
