    Hey all

    Just wondering if anyone has a way or knows of someone who has had issues with trying to install certificates on firefox.

    We have changed our web filter over to Sophos from Bloxx. When I connect with Internet Explorer there is no issue as we set this up via group policy. One thing we cant seem to do is make firefox keep the certificate we have installed. Every time we install the certificate it will work, when we restart the machine we are finding that it wont hold on to the certificate and we have to add it again.

    Has anyone had an issue like this ????

    Thanks for any help

    Same user each time mate? Could be a profile issue perhaps..

    Hey Sparky

    No its all users, even myself. Internet Explorer is fine. I can install the certificate manually but then after the machine reboots it will wipe all traces or just not hold on to the info and then we have to add it again. I have seen a third party app which is supposed to let you do this via GP but not really much luck yet?

    Thanks

    Stab in the dark - but you never know.

    There's a GPO setting named Configure root certificate clean up

    May be worth seeing if that's enabled? even if it is, i'm not 100% wether or not it'd target certificates you've installed by yourself.

    Other option i guess would be to distribute the certificate you need through GPO also? or at least test on a few machines and see if doing so via gpo works better than installing it manually.

    Perhaps detach a PC from the domain and install the cert - reboot and log on again to see if the cert is still there. If all is good then it looks like a GPO\script or some other issue on the domain that is causing the drama : )
