Description

14 years ago
When PSM can't import a cert (root CA cert,
subordinate CA cert, or web server cert), it
does not display any error message.  It just
silently fails.

This has been mentioned in the following bugs,
whose purposes are on the underlying cause of
the cert import failure.
1. Bug 221272: we can't import a .crt file
with Macintosh line endings on Windows.
2. Bug 229565: we can't import certs with a
lifetime over year 2049.  (Reproducing this
bug requires NSS 3.8.x or older, which does
not support GeneralizedTime.)

The right place to possibly add error messages on failure is PSMContentDownloader.
