I have a certificate in the .crt format which needs to be in the "Your Certificates" tab.

Firefox only allows certificates in the .p12 and .pfx formats there.

How do I import this certificate into the "Your certificates" tab?

I tried to see if I can convert .crt into .p12 but no luck. (the same certificate I was able to convert to .p7b and .spc format)

Please help!

P.S. The reason I am doing this is because my hard drive crashed and I have the back up copy of the certificate and now need to install it. Before that the webservice who issued the certificate installed it from within the asked to safe the back up copy, which I did.

Can you install that certificate in IE and export it there to a format that Firefox supports?

I tried it. It says the "import was successful" but the certificate does not show up in the "Personal" tab. I restarted the EI, it did not help.
