I created a self signed certificate for local testing. The certificate generates an error in firefox and chrome saying:
myPC:443 uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed. (Error code: sec_error_ca_cert_invalid)
The certificate is self signed, but it's also in my trusted certificate store.
As a result, I would expect firefox and chrome to trust it because by adding it to my trusted certificate store I have declared it's legitimate.
However, they don't, and I am not sure if this is standard behaviour (that the browsers ignore the trusted store) or if it is a genuine configuration problem with my certificate.
It is ok in Internet Explorer.
