When I try to backup the certificate, I am allowed to choose a filename and a password, but Mozilla Firebird throws an error: "Failed to create the PKCS #12 backup file for unknown reasons". Other than not being able to backup my certificate, this error should probably be explained better. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 0. Install certificate. 1. Go to Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Manage Certificates 2. Select the certificate. 3. Click backup 4. Choose filename and password. The error appears Actual Results: An error: "Failed to create the PKCS #12 backup file for unknown reasons". Expected Results: Backup the certificate. If this is not possible, please give a better description of the problem.

I'm also suffering from this very same problem, I'm using mozilla 1.6-1 from Debian, but I have been able to reproduce this also in mozilla-firefox 0.8, both under Debian GNU/Linux unstable. My certificate comes from Spain's government certifier (www.cert.fnmt.es), and it has an ñ in the CN so it really could be the bug with the encoding, how could I test if this is really that bug? I've tested having a password and without a password in the software security device just in case it made any sense. I'd be happy to compile whatever is needed to test if this has been fixed in development versions of mozilla or mozilla-firefox. Thanks in advance!
I've just downloaded and installed Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040218 which does recognize well the ñ and the other characters in my certificate, however it still does give the same error when trying to backup the certificate, so it seems that in this version bug #197009 is solved, but this problem still remains. If you need any more info about this just tell me. Regards!
