Certificate manager does not easily display the certificates email-address in "certificate view". Do find the email an certificate is issued for, one needs to switch to the "details" view and dig for the "Subject:" entry.

While an expert may be able to do find, a common user is not. So for the expert is over-complicated and for the common user it is impossible to find out the email a certificate is issued for. (Esp. in conjunction with 452591, "email address not displayied in "my certificates")

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Import some email certificate into Thunderbird.
2. Double click on the certificate, the "Certificate View" windows will appear.

Actual Results:  
The email address the certificate is issued for is not displayed in the "General" tab.

To find the email address you have to switch to the "Details" tab and dig for "Subject".

Expected Results:  
The email address the certificate is issued should be displayed in the "General" tab.

The add-on "Cert Viewer Plus" https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/1964 adds this function (and others). Please integrate Cert Viewer into Thunderbird (ans FF).

The use of client certificates is rare enough that if an add-on provides this, that's the best place for this functionality.
