I’ve been tasked to see if it is possible to silently import a .p12 cert for around 150 users in to Firefox. The process I’m trying to automate is:


Tools> Options >Advanced > Encryption tab > View Certificates > Your Certificates > Import > ‘browse to cert’ > Enter password


Does anyone know if is possible if so how so?

not sure if .p12 certs are supported but look into using CertMgr.exe

  • I was under the impression that the certificate store for FF was different to the one for IE. wouldn’t certmgr just be for IE? Or i have i got this all wrong.
  • my apologies, it seems you are right..

    Not sure if this will cover your needs, but have a look at http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/pki/nss/tools/certutil.html

    or this one:

    if they still work...
