Listing of Trusted Root CA in Mozilla Firefox

This section provides a tutorial example on how to see the list of trusted root CA (Certificate Authorities) pre-installed in Mozilla Firefox.

As learned earlier, the trust of the entire HTTPS Website PKI is based on certificates of trusted root CA (Certificate Authorities) pre-installed in the browser.

Before using the Mozilla browser Mozilla Firefox on my computer to visit any HTTPS Websites, I want to see who are those trusted root CAs pre-installed in Mozilla Firefox.

1. Run Mozilla Firefox. And open the certificate manager as described in the previous tutorial.

2. Click the "Authorities" tab. A list of pre-installed trusted root CA certificates shows up.

Some of them are included here to give you an idea on who are those trusted root CAs:
