I'm a web developer working on an app running in Docker on my MacBook. Chrome, Edge and Safari trust the self-signed certificate that has been imported into the Mac's root certificate store and have no security issues, but when I try and access the web app, I'm hit with "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead" and the error code is MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_CA_CERT_USED_AS_END_ENTITY

I really miss Firefox, particularly the multi-account containers feature. What do I need to do so that Firefox will trust my certificate for my local web app?

Sounds like the certificate isn't in the registered database as currently accepted certificate here.

The certificate has CA:true set in it. Will this be a problem?

You have to contact the certificate maker or authorization - Firefox forum can't fix bad certificate or invalid certificate checks.
