With some C++/XPCOM glue you can poke around in Mozilla internals and
do practically anything, but that's probably overkill, and also
probably out of the question here.

About all you can do to configure GtkMozEmbed is to point it at a
Mozilla user profile.
Certificates are stored in user profiles, so that may well be the
cause of this issue. However, they should also be taken from the
global profile (which is where the default certs should be), so I do
not know why you have this problem.

AFAIK, this profile must be the *same* for all instances in the
process, so if you change it, you change it for MonoDevelop itself.
This actually reflects on something that Lluis and I were talking
about in IRC, the possibility of having a persistent Mozilla profile
for MonoDevelop.

By default, MD points gtkmozembed to /tmp/MonoDevelop, and it creates
a new profile there. However, other calls to the WebControl contructor
change this to some useless default; the end result was that on my
machine, the profile was not created. I've attached a simple patch
that fixes this, and implements per-user Mozilla profiles -- see if it
fixes your problem.
