The browser simply hangs when I try to do so. I am not sure if it matters. When I viewed the root CA certificates, I closed the Preferences window first and then close the "certificate manager" (not sure if this is the right name). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open browser or Mozilla mail. 2. choose Edit | Preferences. Actual Results: It hangs. Expected Results: Open the Preferences window.
Can you provide a copy of the self-sign certificate in question, and how you made it / found it?
Something else to try would be to upgrade to 1.3b, in a new dirctory of course.
I don't have the self-sign certificate any more because I have replaced it with a real certificate. The only copy left is the one stored some where by Mozilla. I use openssl to create the key and the self-sign certificate: 1. openssl genrsa -out file.key 1024 2. openssl req -new -key file.key -x509 -out file.crt As far as I can tell, Mozilla imported this certificate just fine and I could (once) see it listed as a trusted root CA certificate and expanded the cert to see its details.
WFM. I followed the steps in comment #4, and didn't run into any problems.
