    First, I'm sorry if the question is not at the correct place.

    I have an application that uses FiddlerCore4.dll

    I use the following to installe Fiddler's certificate:


            public static bool InstallCertificate()
                if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(certmakerBcCert))
                    FiddlerApplication.Prefs.SetStringPref("fiddler.certmaker.bc.key", certmakerBcKey);
                    FiddlerApplication.Prefs.SetStringPref("fiddler.certmaker.bc.cert", certmakerBcCert);

                if (!CertMaker.rootCertExists())
                    //CLog.writeNoLogInDB("Creating SSL certificate");
                    if (!CertMaker.createRootCert())
                        return false;

                    if (!CertMaker.trustRootCert())
                        return false;

                    FiddlerApplication.Prefs.SetBoolPref("fiddler.certmaker.PreferCertEnroll", true);
                    certmakerBcCert = FiddlerApplication.Prefs.GetStringPref("fiddler.certmaker.bc.cert", null);
                    certmakerBcKey = FiddlerApplication.Prefs.GetStringPref("fiddler.certmaker.bc.key", null);
                return true;


    However, for firefox, I need to import them manually. How can I ensure through code they are also installed in Firefox? Been looking how to do it for a while.

    My application needs to be user friendly, so using Fiddler application to generate Root certificates, and then import them in Firefox is complicated for users.

    Rather unfortunately, this is really a Firefox API question and not FiddlerCore.

    On a side note, please, make sure you have the appropriate FiddlerCore license for developing commercial applications. The free version of FiddlerCore is intended for educational purposes only.
