Comment (by gk):

 While working on #26045 we realized that for nightly builds as they are
 produced today it is not sufficient to just replace the
 `nightly_aurora_level3`* certificates Mozilla uses for such cases. The
 reason for that is that our update channel is `default` which lets the
 code use the `dep1.der` and dep2.der` certificates instead.

 I guess it is not unreasonable to move to a `nightly` update channel and
 then only replace the `nightly_aurora_level3`* certs.
