How to flush removed personal certificate

Posted

I have problems removing my personal certificate from the Firefox. I I try to remove my certificate (Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Certificates: View Certificate) by selecting it and deleting it (pressing the Delete button), the Firefox shows that the certificate is removed (no longer installed in Firefox). But if I shortly after the removal of the certificate (e.g. several seconds) quit the Firefox and restart it again, the certificate is still present. The certificate is removed e.g. change is flushed to the cert9.db file only if the Firefox is running for a period of time.

The question is if there is a way of forcing an immediate flush to the cert9.db file or, if there is no such way, what is the time required for Firefox to be running that the flushing of the cert9.db file takes place.

You are asking when the flushing of the cert9.db takes place when you open Firefox, from what I understand? I don't think you can do this without putting your browser experience at risk.

I am sorry I don't know the answer to that. However what you are trying to accomplish I think the actual process of checking certs is done with ocsp stapling. I would not turn that off though, as it would affect the other websites you visit.
