Jan, I'm surprised there are mismatches in the version numbers. You say, your
build identifier is 1.2, but your code is trying to access libraries in a
directory for version 1.2.1?

Is possibly your shared library environment pointing to multiple Mozilla library
directories, and what you see is an effect of mixing different version executables?
PK11_GetModInfo was added to in NSS 3.6.  
I think the very latest versions of mozilla use the new features of NSS 3.6.
So, if you're using a very new mozilla and an not-very-new NSS (e.g. NSS 3.5)
that would explain it.  The solution is to get or build NSS 3.6 or 3.7 
and use it.

Submittor, please confirm that this is indeed a lib mismatch, or not.

I confirm that the HPUX build marked as version 1.2.1 with filename
mozilla-hppa2.0w-hp-hpux11.00-1.2.1.tar.gz in fact says that it is
version 1.2 when you click Help->About Mozilla

I find a [note lower case "nss"] in mozilla top directory,
so maybe the builder of the HPUX build used the wrong version of libnss?

1.2 is quite old by now.  Closing out bug, please reopen or file a new bug if
this happens with a more recent version.
