Description

Sometimes the *.db files of NSS get corrupted.
A user can fix the problem by backing up certificates to p12 files, delete the
*.db files, let the application create new files, and import the p12 files.

However, this does not work for other keys stored in the database files. Mozilla
uses a database to store passwords for web sites, and those are encrypted using
a symmetric key and NSS functions named "secret decoder ring".

Ideally, it should be possible to back up all keys stored in the NSS database,
not only those that are part of certificates.

Mass reassign ssaux bugs to nobody
Assignee: ssaux → nobody
Mass change "Future" target milestone to "--" on bugs that now are assigned to
nobody.  Those targets reflected the prioritization of past PSM management.
Many of these should be marked invalid or wontfix, I think.
Target Milestone: Future → ---
