There are two places that map the name of a certificate issuer to an updated name: 1) PageInfoOverlay.xul - to display the name in the info page 2) nsNSSCallbacks.cpp - display the CA name in the tooltip (short description) The mapping of the name should be provided as a service (and called from the two locations) or the mapped organization name should be an attribute of the certificate.
Mass assigning QA to ckritzer.
reassign former PSM engineers' bugs to firstname.lastname@example.org
Going to call this invalid based on the fact that such hacks are confusing and AFAICT the existing instance of this is now outdated.
I forgot: When RSA was purchased by Symantec, they asked us to do this again. IIRC, they wanted the VeriSign certificates to be referred to as "Norton." On dev-tech-crypto, the PSM/NSS teams agreed not to do that, and that this kind of thing is a bad idea in general.
