I think you can do this with :set content.ssl_strict false

Yes, this is probably a very bad idea, since you wouldn't know if you're
being MITM'd. I'm not sure why there are more SSL warnings in
qutebrowser than in normal ones (I see them too). I think this might be
qutebrowser using system certs rather than the built-in ones (but I'm
not sure if that's the case).
