Build ID: 20130618035212

Steps to reproduce:

On Firefox 23 i use add-on for import Certificates
&& for user certificate

This add-in works with Firefox 23 and newer(Test with Aurora 26 && Fennec 27)
(Imports OK)

Actual results:

With firefox 23, when i load secure URL,  i select my user certificate (from the firefox Keystore) and i 'm connect with success

With firefox 24 and newer, i doesn't show prompt dialog for select user certificate and result is =ssl_error_handshake_failure_alert

Log (with Aurora >>> same bug with firefox 24 and fennec 27.)

Ok ;(
It's a  regression ?
Can you paste how you're calling the prompt dialog? I think this is due to changes on mozilla-24 from bug 878848. I've CC'ed Wes and Kats as they touched NSSDialogService.js
This is just a typo (and I this code is hard to test). The method should be addMenulist()
If you can confirm that, we can close this out as invalid.
