Listing of Trusted Root CA in Firefox 35

This section provides a tutorial example on how to see the list of trusted root CA (Certificate Authorities) pre-installed in Firefox 35.

As learned earlier, the trust of the entire HTTPS Web site PKI is based on certificates of trusted root CA (Certificate Authorities) pre-installed in the browser.

Before using the Mozilla browser Firefox 35 on my computer to visit any HTTPS Web sites, I want to see who are those trusted root CAs pre-installed in Firefox 35.

1. Run Firefox 35, and go to the "Tools" > "Options..." menu. The Options dialog box shows up.

2. Click the "Advanced" icon, then click the "Certificates" tab.

3. Click the "View Certificates" button. The Certificate Manager dialog box shows up.

4. Click the "Authorities" tab. A list of pre-installed trusted root CA certificates shows up.

Some of them are included to give you an idea on who are those trusted root CAs:
