Installing Comodo Personal Certificate with Chrome

This section provides a tutorial example on how to install Comodo personal certificate with Firefox by following the hyperlink in the Comodo notification email.

After installing my personal certificate generated from Comodo in Mozillar Firefox, I also tried to install it with other Web browsers like Google Chrome.

1. Run Google Chrome as an administrator.

2. Open the Comodo certificate notification email and follow the "Click to Install Comodo Email Certificate" link in Firefox.

3. A Comodo Web page opens up and pops up the save file dialog box.

4. Find a folder an Enter a file name like "TestCert.crt",

5. Enter find a folder, enter a file name like "TestCert.crt", and keep other default options.

6. Click "Save" button. I see a certificate file is saved.

7. Open the certificate file, "TestCert.crt". I see only the public key of my certificate.

So this confirms that you can not use Google Chrome to install Comodo personal certificate.

I also tried to using Comodo personal certificate collection Website with Google Chrome.

1. Run Google Chrome as an administrator.

2. Go to certificate collection Website at https://secure.comodo.com/products/!SecureEmailCertificate_Collec2.

3. Enter my email address and the password included in Comodo notification email.

4. Click "Submit & Continue" button, I see the save file dialog box shows up.

5. Enter find a folder, enter a file name like "TestCert2.crt", and keep other default options.

6. Click "Save" button. I see a certificate file is saved.

7. Open the certificate file, "TestCert2.crt". I see only the public key of my certificate.

Conclusion - There is no other way to download the full version of my personal certificate including private key, except using Mozilla FireFox or Internet Explorer.
