Hi I was wondering if there was an easy fix for this. Say in an organization, they install a few root certificates onto the trusted root cert folder, and IE and Chrome works perfectly. But when you install Firefox, it doesn't see or use those certificates and it doesn't connect to any websites.

 

Is there a way to get Firefox to see those certificates?

 

(it is not against policy, just wondering if i can DIY as opposed to bothering them to fix it)

Just quoting directly from our internal wiki (hopefully these steps also work in your organisation):

 

     

  1. In Firefox, go to Options/Privacy & Security/Certificates and choose View Certificates
  2. From the Authorities tab, choose Import
  3. Browse to the certificate file and install it, selecting Trust this CA to identify web sites
  4. Go to an SSL site
  5. Select to confirm the exception.

You will need to grab the ADMX templates and then set up the appropriate GPO settings https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customizing-firefox-using-group-policy

 

I think you need the latest ESR release for it to work as well.
