Hello,

When I call up a website that a user requests a certificate.

Can I tell Firefox to save my decision.

How can I delete this decision afterwards?

I can't find anything about this. Delete website setting does not help.

Only resetting the whole profile would work.

But I don't want to do that.

If Firefox remembers such a decision, then this is stored as part of the "Site settings", so make sure that you aren't using private browsing mode and aren't clearing the "Site settings".

In case you use "Clear history when Firefox closes" or otherwise clear history.

  • do not clear the "Site settings"
  • clearing "Site settings" clears exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, and software installation and exceptions for passwords and other website specific data

Unfortunately it doesn't help. I deleted everything using Clear Recent History, but the query no longer appears.

Maybe this is stored in cert_override.txt in the Firefox profile folder.
