Exporting Certificate to File from Firefox 35
This section provides a tutorial example on how to export a trusted root CA certificate installed in Firefox 35 into a certificate file in PEM (Privacy Enhanced Mail) format.
In previous tutorials, we learned how to access certificates installed in Firefox. Now let's see if we can export a certificate out of Firefox.
1. Repeat steps listed in the previous tutorial until you see the Certificate Manager dialog box.
2. Go to the Authorities tab and select "VeriSign Class 3 Public Primary Certification Authority - G5".
3. Click "Export" button. The Save Certificate To File dialog box shows up. The "Save as type" field supports these types with "X.509 Certificate (PEM)" as the default:
X.509 Certificate (PEM) X.509 Certificate with chain (PEM) X.509 Certificate (DER) X.509 Certificate (PKCS#7) X.509 Certificate with chain (PKCS#7)
4. Enter a file name: \temp\VeriSign_Root_CA_pem.crt, and click the "Save" button. The selected certificate will be exported into the specified file.
