Automate importing a .p12 certificate in to firefox

05/10/2012 3975 views




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
