Verisign Class 3 Extended Validation SSL CA missing from the Certificate authorities


Is Mozllia still including Verisign Class 3 Extended Validation SSL CA in their downloads? When I do fresh installations of version 3.6.13 and 4.0 Beta I am getting a sec_error_unknown_issuer and it doesn't appeare to have that CA in Certificate Manager.

That is an intermediate certificate that web servers need to send. Firefox only comes with the VeriSign root certificates and not with all other intermediate certificates.

See https://knowledge.verisign.com/support/ssl-certificates-support/index?page=content&id=AR1130

If the server isn't sending the certificate and you haven't visited a website that sends it then you need to install it yourself.
You can visit this web page to make Firefox store that certificate:
