Right under the "Account to synchronize" heading, you will find a padlock icon. If it's green (i.e. not yellow with a warning sign, which signifies an unencrypted connection), you can view the certificate chain by clicking on it. Hovering over an item in the chain will show all details, including fingerprints.

It was closed for 1.5.1 because this is _exactly_ what this feature implements.
