Note: Due to the way Firefox saves usernames and passwords for visited websites, IS&T strongly advises that you set a master password to protect your certificates and any stored passwords. During the process of getting a new personal certificate, an Alert message will appear about keeping a backup copy of the certificate on your system. It is not necessary for you to backup your personal certificate locally.
Note: Installing Firefox 17 ESR will overwrite your existing installation of Firefox. Bookmarks or browsing history will not be lost, but some extensions and other add-ons might not work until updates for them are available.
