User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.0.3) Gecko/2008101315 Ubuntu/8.10 (intrepid) Firefox/3.0.3
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.13pre) Gecko/20080602 Ubuntu/8.10 (intrepid) Calendar/0.8

Many organisations including ourselves create an internal certificate authority to sign all server and user certificates. In Firefox and Thunderbird one can import a root authority certificate to allow certs issued by that authority to be trusted. The facility is in the Preferences window, under Advanced > Encryption (for Firefox) or Advanced > Certificates (for Thunderbird). The Calendar/Sunbird application has no such option.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Edit > Preferences (or Tools > Preferences in Win32 version)
2. Go to Advanced tab
3. Note the lack of options for SSL security
Actual Results:  
There is no way to import certificates of trusted root certificate authorities, therefore no way of knowing that certs were issued by your trusted CA.

Expected Results:  
Ability to import root CA certificate as in Firefox & Thunderbird.

How did I not notice there was already another release version? Never mind.
