Has anyone had any luck importing the revocation list into Firefox?
When I choose the import button on the revocation list tab, I do not
get a file browser like I do with the other options.  I just get a box
asking me where the revocation list information is stored, with a text
field.  I put the absolute pathname in, click OK ... and nothing
happens.  No error messages.  No success either.
