If i bring up a trusted secure page first so i can enter my master password then go back to add the certificate exception it will work. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. have fips enabled 2. go to a website with an untrusted certificate before entering your master password for anything else 3. attempt to add exception Actual Results: will not add exception Expected Results: it will confirm the exception and continue
-> PSM, and updating summary to reflect report.

Summary: can't add certificate exception → FIPS mode prevents certificate exceptions until master pw entered elsewhere, doesn't prompt
I am unable to reproduce this problem. Here's what I did: -Set my master password -Enabled FIPS mode -Quit -Restarted -Visited http://ecc.fedora.redhat.com/ -Selected a ciphersuite. -Was prompted for my Master Password, which I supplied. -Got the error page (untrusted CA) -Set an exception for the web site -Verified the exception was present in the Cert Manager What might have been different about your steps?
Hm, seems similar to Bug 225849, which is ancient...
Hi, i can no longer seem to reproduce it either, so it could have possibly been a non firefox issue.
