I've had trouble accessing websites that use a certificate that's signed with the DigiCert Root CA. As an example, if I open up blog.mozilla.org, I get a SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER.
This is somehow related to my user profile. If I create a new profile, the problem disappears.
I've tried deleting cert*.db in my profile directory to no avail. I checked about:config and I couldn't find any relevant non-default configuration.
To my surprise, if I want to manually set the trust of the certificate in the certificate manager ("Edit Trust"), it tells me that the certificate is trusted. However, if I click on "View Certificate", I get the following error: "Could not verify this certificate because the issuer is unknown."
I don't know much about CAs, but it seems to be surprising how the issuer of a Root CA could be unknown, isn't that the whole point of a Root CA that it does not need to be signed by another certificate?
The more important question: Where in my profile may I have a non-default option that causes Firefox to not trust the DigiCert Global Root CA?

For years I have used Firefox and been able to login to my NatWest Account - suddenly I am no longer able to have this facility. SECURE CONNECTION FAILED - The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading. The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data couldn't be verified. Please contact the owners of the website to inform them of this problem.
I looked on your help site to see if there were others with this challenge and found some comments from some sanctimonious prat to the effect that this should be remedied by the website owner and that eventually the website would no longer be able to be accessed by any other browser such as Chrome, Edge etc. Great, but I need to see my bank accounts online and rather than change banks, I am changing to Edge so that I can. Eventually NatWest may have to change their security but until then I am going to move away from Firefox, and, I know I only contribute a small amount to your "cause" every year but I shall take that away as well - you are too "holier than thou" in your approach to security and take no thought of how its implications affect the user.
