Hello,

I have a personal certificate that is stored on GemSafe token and have imported the library opensc-pkcs11.so in browse so Firefox can read certificate. If I go to Edit-->Preferences-->Advanced-->Security devices I see my token and can successfully log on it. Also if I go to Edit-->Preferences-->Advanced-->View Certificates Firefox prompt for token security pin and after I  enter it I can see my personal certificate. 
The problem is when I try to open secure web page that need this certificate for authentication - Firefox doesn't prompt for token security pin and doesn't offer my personal certificate to the site and connection fails with error:
Secure connection failed:
The page you are trying to view can not be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install new security device as loading library /usr/lib/opensc-pkcs11.so in Edit-->Preferences-->Advanced-->Encryption-->Security devices
2. After successful library loading log in to device
3. Go to site https://e-fibank.bg/EBank/Home or https://gate.infonotary.com/diagnostics/dumpcert.cgi and error is raised.
Actual Results:  
Can't open secure web pages - receive an error:
Secure connection failed
Firefox doesn't prompt for security pin and doesn't offer my personal certificate.

Expected Results:  
I've expected Firefox to try to offer my personal certificate and to ask me for my security pin.

The problem started a few week s ago, but if I try to downgrade Firefox and xulrunner to previous versions nothing changes - still the same error. Opensc is version 0.11.12, pcscd 1.5.5, pkcs11-helper 1.07. There is no problem with Firefox and Windows XP - everything works fine. The problem is only with linux version.
