This is a usability problem, not a severe bug.

When deleting a certificate from the list of "Authorities" in the certificate
manager, a jump to the end of the list occurs immediately (this jump only occurs
after scrolling down at least one line!). This can be very annoying if you want
to continue browsing through the list after deletion.

I have not yet discovered, whether the problem occurs in the other tabs
("WebSites", "Other People's", "Your Certificates") as well. I cannot try these
because I haven't got enough certificates for a scrollbar in these tabs.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to "Edit/Preferences/Privacy&Security/Certificates" and click on "manage
2. Click on the Tab "Authorities" and you should find a lot of certificates in a
long list.
3. Use the scrollbar to scroll down at least one line.
4. Select a certificate in the list and click "delete", then "OK".

Actual Results:  
The list is being scrolled down to the very last entry.

Expected Results:  
After deleting an entry, the view of the list should be changed as little as
possible. The following certificates should move up one respectively two lines
to fill up the space left by the deleted certificate.

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.

I just checked with SeaMonkey 1.1.18 and it behaves correctly (no scroll to the end of the list). It seems that this bug has been fixed sometime in the past years and should be marked resolved.
