Exporting Certificate to File from Mozilla Firefox
This section provides a tutorial example on how to export a trusted root CA certificate installed in Mozilla Firefox 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 "DigiCert High Assurance EV Root CA".
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\DigiCert_Root_CA_pem.crt, and click the "Save" button. The selected certificate will be exported into the specified file.
