I can't find Options in either the menu in the upper right or Tools. I'm running Firefox 57. I cannot retrieve my security certificate until I can get to Advanced Options. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Chosen solution

Several ways to get to where the Security Certificates are but there is no longer a Advanced.

From the 3 Bar Menu far right Go to Options --> Privacy & Security go down to Certificates page bottom.

Or from the Firefox Menu Bar mouse to top of browser Right Click then Click Menu Bar --> Tools--> Options --> Privacy & Security go down to Certificates page bottom.

Or Copy/Paste about:preferences#privacy into the Address Bar then Enter go to page bottom.

Please update to Firefox version 57.0.2 : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/update-firefox-latest-version

Please let us know if this solved your issue or if need further assistance.

On Mac it is Firefox > Preferences.
