User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20091017 SUSE/2.0.0-1.1.3 SeaMonkey/2.0 Build Identifier: The descriptive string for CA certificates (Edit.Preferences.Advanced."View Certificates".Authorities."View Certificates".(...).Edit) is completely wrong an thus confusing: e.g. "This certificate can identify websites" A CA certificate will NEVER _identify_ a website; it will _certify_ (sign) website _certificates_. So for a CA that signs user, host and software certificates, the use has to check all three of the "can identify" check-boxes to make the CA work. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Import a new CA certificate into the browser 2. Answer the questions Actual Results: You'll see confusing items like "This certificate can identify websites" Expected Results: "This certificate can identify website certificates or certification authorities for websites" May wording may not be optimal, but the original is much worse.
"May" should be "My" above (sorry). Also, I thin this bug is there since at least Firefox 2.0.
