We issue certificates to customers for document signing. They use the certificates to sign orders. The software they use to place the orders require the certificate to be in the Microsoft Certificate store. Anyone that downloads their certificate using Firefox must backup the certificate to a .p12 then import into the Microsoft Certificate store using IE11.

The import into IE fails with an error saying the .p12 password is incorrect. The problem seems to be the Encryption Iteration of 1,000,000. Microsoft doesn't handle that number.

If I convert the .p12 to a .pem using a third party conversion tool, then convert it back to a .p12 with a smaller Iteration, say 2048, it imports into IE just fine.

is there a configuration option in Firefox to reduce the Encryption Iteration?
