Firefox and Trusted Certificates
I recently read about some sort of forged SSH Certicate, and thought I should have a look at the Certificates stored (in Firefox). I was surprised when I tried to delete an untrusted Certificate (Turktrust..etc) or somesuch. I highlited the entry (the first one on the list), and clicked the delete button. The entry disapeared from the listing, and I went on the delete a few more that showed untrusted or not verified. I then exited the preferences menu, and closed Firefox. I then restared Firefox, and low and behold, the deleted Certificates were back in the listing. I might add that this F10 is updated as of yesterday, and was newly installed about a week ago.
My first thought was that I might need to be root to do this, but that makes no sense. Can anyone shed any light on this?
Edit..I noted by googling this, that Turktrust is probably legitimate; I just wonder why Firefox does not actually delete it, when I click the Delete button?
