 1. Create self-sign certificate.
 Signed for '*.v3onionnamehere.onion' by '*.v3onionnamehere.onion'

 2. Configure server to use the certificate, with "https http2".

 3. Connect to https://hello.v3onionnamehere.onion

 4. "The certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed." > Add
 exception and continue.

 Expected result:
 URL bar shows Onion icon with small padlock icon.

 the connection itself is using https tls1.2.
