Importing my PKCS #12 certificate from Internet Explorer fails

Whenever I try to import my client certificate to authenticate myself on certain websites from Internet explorer to Firefox, I receive an error box that has the message:

"The PKCS #12 operation failed for unknown reasons."

What a super helpful message.

I've exported the certificate from Internet explorer including the private key into a PKCS #12 file.

I've had a certificate that was successfully imported into Firefox in the past that I've tried to re-import as a test, and that also failed. What's the deal?

Hi superheavy, In version 31 there was an update to the Certificate Verification in gecko. It is called mozilla::pkix

Mozilla's included CA Certificate List

Seems to be the same issue. The process outlined in that bug report is the same I follow, even for verification. Guess it's a confirmed bug and I need to wait.
