I have problems with 2 certificates from
https://zertifikate.allgeier.com/pages/cas

In german Thunderbird 3.1.2 under german WinXP with SP3 and all current updates
Signtrust CERT Class 2 CA 4:PN produces an errormessage that translates to
something like "certificate could not be verified for unknown reasons"

Signtrust CERT Class 2 CA 3:PN wouldn't install.
before renaming cert8.db it would produce the following error in the
errorconsole:
Fehler: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code:
0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIX509CertDB.importCertsFromFile]" nsresult:
"0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)" location: "JS frame ::
chrome://pippki/content/certManager.js :: addCACerts :: line 557" data: no]

after renaming cert8.db the error changed to:
Fehler: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code:
0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIX509CertDB.importCertsFromFile]" nsresult:
"0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)" location: "JS frame ::
chrome://pippki/content/certManager.js :: addWebSiteCert :: line 613" data: no]

In german Firefox 3.6.8 the last certifikate produces an errormessage in the
errorconsole too:
Fehler: Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)
[nsIX509CertDB.importCertsFromFile]
Quelldatei: chrome://pippki/content/certManager.js
Zeile: 613

In windows the certificates install ok and the certificate I manually save from
an e-mail I got verifies ok.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.download certificates
2.import them
3.


Expected Results:  
imported the certificates and verify

This is also reported as Bug 459845 but limited to Firefox. the importance is much bigger in Thunderbird though as it makes it impossible to verify certificates/e-mails from my bank

It works!
On Thunderbird 3.1.7 i can import the current Rootcertificates from https://zertifikate.allgeier.com/pages/cas - and all works fine.
 ==>Please try it again with the actual certs.
