Firefox Cerificates From Command Line (Windows)

Hi Guys,

I have want to install CA Root Authority Certificate (.crt) and Personal Certificate (.p12 or .pfx) on Firefox from a command line,

I've tried to use certutil and it even gives a successful message but it just doesn't go to the needed Certificate Store/Certificate Profile in the firefox.

Help please :D

Maybe I must stop calling it vaporware, but Mozilla has found an excellent way to hide it, and to make it super complicated to get and install it:


Certutil is included in NSS (Network Security Services).
NSS requires the NSPR (Netscape Portable Runtime) package.



Extract and
Create a new directory and copy there from the extracted zip archives:
- the exe files from nss-3.10RTM/bin
- the dll files from nss-3.10RTM/lib
- the dll files from nspr-4.6/lib


If you want to use it in Windows 7, you probably must also copy these files from a PC with Windows XP:
- C:\WINDOWS\system32\msvcr71.dll
- C:\WINDOWS\system32\kernel32.dll

Not Yet,
I found on my own there is tool from mozilla called certutil (like windows have) but couldn't find anywhere to download it, only source files, so still stuck.
I would call mozilla certutil vaporware, it doesn't seem to exist.

One explanation I have seen is that it's embedded in the exe, but there's not way to use it, because there is no GUI for it. The addon Key Manager is said to add this missing gui to the already existing functions, but for a pure gui it comes with an awful lot of binary files. And there seems to be no way to run it from the command line. Also so far all my tries to use this addon failed, it always crashes.

Maybe you could use the CCK wizard, an addon by Mike Kaply, to deploy the certificate.
