Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to Tools - Advanced Tab - View Certificates. 2. Under Certificate Manager, try to delete ABA ECOM Root CA certificate. 3. Restart Firefox. (Closing and restarting Certificate Manager without full restart happens as well) 4. "Deleted" certificate is back. Actual Results: There is no real deletion. Expected Results: It should be possible to delete certificate authority (CA) and import them again. I cannot reproduce with VeriSign certificates.
as of today it's not possible to delete certificates contained in the builtin software token. when you delete it, we simply remove its trust there is already a bug on file that requests improving the user experience
