Install certificates to Firefox 24.0
I am trying to install couple of certificates to Firefox. Have tried many different things to automate the process. But nothing seems to be working for me. I want to install the certificates along with the installation.
These are the ways that I have tried to do when doing the install.
1) Improted all the certificates manually and copied the cert8.db file into the defaults/profile which is a bummer.
2) tried to copy the certificates into a temporary location and then run the command line which did not work either.
3) I have noticed that the certificates that firefox maintains its own database for certificated. So the certutil.exe which is in System32 folder does not work. So have to download a different certutil.exe which is specifically meant for firefox. that did not work either.
4) tried to do a setup capture of the installation and just have it with the setup capture. But my collegues suggested that we dont do that as there are bookmarks and personalized settings in their defaults profile folder that we dont want to delete.
So all in all thought automating certificates is a big pain in firefox.
Can anyone help in any other way of deploying the certificates automatically along with the installation.
thanks a lot in advance.
manually install the certificates and the then copy the cert8.db file from %APPDATA%\Roaming\Mozilla\Profile\*******.default. then create a vbscript that would read the profile name and then paste the cert8.db file in %APPDATA%\Roaming\Mozilla\Profile\*******.default when it is created. and then create a registry entry so that it would run the script each and every time the user logs on. [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run] "FirefoxCertificates"="\"C:\\Program Files\\Mozilla Firefox\\Firefox_certificates.vbs\"" Copy both the cert8.db file and the VBscript into program files\Mozilla Firefox and then it is done.
