Backing up my Digital Certificates in Firefox.

Postby gerryh » Mon Oct 02, 2023 7:15 pm

I need to back up my recently renewed certificates and export them to Edge and my Samsung Andriod, phone.
Got the message "Failed to create the PKCS #12 backup file for unknown reasons."
I did a Google search but haven't found, as yet, anything useful or understandable.
Cheers
Gerry

Hi gerryh,
I've just run through the Backup proceedure and get the same error message

Firefox ver: 118.0.1 (64-bit)

Did it not auto update your Edge Bowser when you renewed :?: ........... From my Post " Digital Signature renewal 2023 "

It did backup when I initially renewed and I dumped them into new Folders,

:!: :!: :!: :!: :!:
Would be good to move my Post................... viewtopic.php?f=22&t=41740

into this Thread as it looks like this issue could be ongoing.

:!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!:

After some "research" .............Firefox ESR 115.3.1esr (64-bit) on a Linux system ( have you got one up and running :?: )

This will Backup and Import Personal Certificates................... :D
All my best learning experiences start with a problem I need to solve.

Hi,

FYI.

Currently if Renewing or Obtaining a Digital Signature use Chrome as Firefox ver 118.0.1 (64-Bit) has issues with Personal Certificates.
