Is there any way for me to view the probabilities for the various cells containing a mine, color-coded, as shown on the webpage?

It is the auto-solver that sometimes shows percentages.

Try "Auto-Solver->Hint" to get a single hint.

In most cases though, the hint will have 100% certainty about it's suggestions, so no probabilities are shown in that case. Probabilities are only shown when there isn't a 100% certain move to make next.

It can be hard to find uncertain cases. First tip is to use a lot of mines, say "Insane" level. You can also tell it to auto-play until it finds an uncertain case. Use "Auto-Solver->Auto-play options" then under "When to stop playing" select "Before guessing based on probability". And choose "Stats mode" to speed forward to the case you want rather than watching it play all the moves in the meantime.
