How do I automate the import of a certificate (.cer) file in Mozilla Firefox

Hello All,

I'd like to ask on ways to import the .cer file and deploy it to SCCM?

Thank you!

if you don't have AD integrated Certs... I normally use certmgr

certmgr /add /s /r registryLocation sourceStorename

Check out this link, for all the commandlines, make sure it works silently with the arguments you need.

  • Hello Badger, we have AD integrated certs however the mozilla firefox browser needs to import the .cer file. No problems on IE and Chrome.
Have you considered capturing the installation of the .cer file on a test machine and then creating a deployable package which installs the certificate into Firefox?

  • The firefox will install it to per-user location. and that per-user location is a random alphanumeric folder name.
    • In order for Firefox to be able to use this certificate, it must keep a record of the random folder name somewhere - either in a file or as a registry item. This is why I make the point about capturing the install and checking for this information.
