Because the SSL session has been established this is meaningless and very annoying (you can select any Certificate, not necessarily the original one that was used to establish the SSL session). Thus the only way to operate is: - set the "Client Certificate Selection" Option to "Ask every time" - log into the web site - set the "Client Certificate Selection" Option to "Select automatically" - continue using the web site This is highly impractical; Firefox should operate like IE, which works as you'd expect.

Related to Core bug 149673?
Yes, sounds very like 149673 (which I didnt' find on my pre-reporting search, because I was looking under Firefox). But, as my description shows, the prompt/reselect is actually meaningless, since the SSL session has already been established.
Reporter, do you still see this problem with the latest Firefox 2? If not, can you please close this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks!

This problem does still exist with the current version of Firefox.
I'm not sure how IE handles this, but there could be a sub-option to "Select automatically" which would allow the user to select a default certificate (and not just the first one on the list). The problem sill exists with Firefox 2.
This is a dupe.
