I am using Firefox. I think some of the SSL certificates are corrupted.

I want to delete all certificates that I have currently in Firefox and reinstall Mozilla's default certificates, but I want to maintain the rest of my profile data (bookmarks, history, etc.).

Is there an easy way to do this?

What makes you think the certificates are corrupted? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Apr 6 '13 at 16:56
Your question is not clear. Whats exactly your issue? – Havenard Apr 6 '13 at 16:58

Open Firefox and in the menu, head to Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> View Certificates.

You can view, manage and delete your certificates from there.

Additionally, assuming you're using Windows Vista+, you can head to %AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles and delete (or rename) the cert8.db and cert_override.txt files in each of the profiles.

More info here, here and here.
