User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; bg; rv:1.9.0.10) Gecko/2009042523 Ubuntu/9.04 (jaunty) Firefox/3.0.10

When invoking signText, the dropdown list of certificates in the confirmation form will display only one item for a nickname. If I have several certificates with the same subject and hence nickname, only the newest one will be shown, and I cannot use older ones to sign the text. This is a problem if I have certificates with the same subject name that are signed by different CAs.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
0. Clear the client certificate list
1. Import two sample CA certificates
2. Import two client certificates signed by the two different CAs, but with the same subject (i.e., same CN and emailAddress)
3. Open an HTML containing the following JavaScript code
signText("Sample text", "ask")

Actual Results:  
The confirmation form will popup, listing only one entry to choose from.

Expected Results:  
A confirmation form with the two certificates listed, perhaps listed as
Nickname
Nickname #2

Please let me know if I should provide more information.
