How to exctract/backup a client certificate from Firefox for Android similar to question #1000240 but for the latest Firefox Beta for Android?

As in #1000240 and in #1032181, I've installed a StartSSL login certificate in my Firefox for Android and having a problem with extracting/backuping it to use with another device/browser.
I'm using the latest Firefox Beta for Android (35.0) at present; the Android version is 4.1.2, my phone model is Sony LT26i (Xperia S), so neither of the aforementioned questions asked at the Mozilla Support website do not contain any solution to the given problem.
Any chance to recover the certificate?
P. S. I haven't rooted my device; if getting a root is the only possible way to recover the certificate, I may consider doing so.

You can try https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/android/addon/copy-profile/ If that does not retrieve the file then see below.
If you know the name and path of the file you can get it using run-as function of adb. See http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18471780/android-adb-retrieve-database-using-run-as
If you end up down here you'll need root to be able to navigate the file system. I don't know the file name, though it is likely in your profile folder which can be determined by visiting about:cache in the Firefox address bar. It will be similar to /data/data/org.mozilla.firefox_beta/files/mozilla/$RANDOM.default/

    It's hard to know whether your hard drive has actually failed or if your system has just gotten badly corrupt. If the former, unfortunately, there may be no way to get any data off the drive at this point. If there aren't any backups of that data, it will be gone forever, unless perhaps a high-priced (ie, in the thousand dollar range) data recovery service has some luck with it.
    If the system and/or hard drive are badly corrupt, the same may be true. Some or all of that data may be irrevocably corrupt by now. However, there are some ways that you can attempt to recover from this situation without paying such huge fees. First, if you have access to another Mac, and both have Firewire ports, you can connect the two using Firewire target disk mode. This will mount the damaged drive as if it were an external hard drive on the second Mac, and could allow you to copy some data from the drive.
    Another possibility would be to buy an external hard drive, install Mac OS X on it and boot the machine from that, then copy any data from there that you can.
    In both of these cases, it may be helpful to scan the damaged drive for recoverable files using something like Data Rescue.
    There are also some possible ways to repair the drive if you can't do either of those things, but any repairs at this point could potentially destroy data. I only recommend this as a last resort. Still, if all other options have failed, try repairing the drive using DiskWarrior. This can fix problems that Disk Utility (and fsck, the command-line tool that it sounds like you may have used) cannot. It is possible that DiskWarrior will be able to get the drive back in working order long enough to get the data recovered, though of course it's also possible the process will be destructive.
    If none of the above work, you'll have to seek professional help.

  • Where/How do I install my client certificates to enable access to my company email??

  • Applet does not get client certificate from browser (Firefox, IE7)

    I'm writing a web service which runs Tomcat through Apache. One critical requirement is that the service be able to invoke certain device drivers on the end user's machine. Fortunately, there is a Java API for this, so this requirement can be fulfilled using an applet.
    Here's the problem. This is a B2B application, so we're using SSL and requiring client authentication. I'm no web security guru, but I managed to get SSL set up through Apache (with a self-signed certificate for now; we'll get a real one from a real CA when we're ready to go to production). I also managed to set up client authentication by creating my own CA and generating a client certificate, which I then copied to my test client (Win XPSP2) and imported into both Firefox (2.0.0.15) and IE (6.0.2900). The applet is signed with a real certificate, and that causes no problems. And all of the pages for my web service work as expected.
    All except one. The page which is supposed to load the applet pops a dialog stating 'Identification required. Please select certificate to be used for authentication', and presents a list of zero certificates.
    Actually, I get this dialog in Firefox on my XPSP2 box, and also when I test on a Vista Home Premium box running IE 7.0.6000. Puzzlingly, this behavior does NOT occur on my XPSP2 box when running through IE 6.0. It seems that with XPSP2 and IE 6.0, the JVM can manage to obtain the required client certificate from the browser and pass it along to Apache, but the JVM can't do this when running in Firefox or in IE 7.0 on Vista.
    I have gone to the Java Control Panel and verified that the 'Use certificates and keys in browser keystore' option is selected on both boxes.
    I've done a fair amount of research for this (including in this forum) and see that this appears to be a chronic difficulty with applets. What makes it worse is that I don't think I can use the standard workaround, which is to download the applet from a different host/virtual host, because the applet needs to communicate with the web service. Since we have the additional layer of Tomcat container-managed user authentication, the applet needs to be communicating with the server using the same session token as everything else.
    So at this point, I'm stuck. Does anyone know a solution to this problem? Two thoughts (I'm reaching at straws here):
    1) I have the certificate imported in both Firefox and IE as a 'personal' certificate. Is there someplace else I can put it so the JVM will know how to find it? A rather old thread in this forum mentioned something about setting properties in the Java Control Panel, but I see no place in the JCP to specify such properties, so I'm guessing that solution is no longer operative.
    2) I'm using a trick I found on the internet to make the applet load cleanly with both Firefox and IE, namely, I'm using the <OBJECT> tag to specify the applet class and codebase for IE, and then using <COMMENT><EMBED ... /></COMMENT> within the <OBJECT> declaration to specify the information for Firefox. Is there some other way of doing the markup that will give the JVM a hint that it should get a certificate from the browser?
    BTW . . . I would hate to drop support for Firefox, but if someone has an IE-only solution, I'll take it. Unfortunately, I reckon a Firefox-only solution would not fly.
    Thanks all.

    My applet is also signed by a valid certificate. The question of whether the applet is signed/self-signed/unsigned >isn't an issue --- I just wanted you to make sure the Applet runs because it is a know valid Java2 Applet that is 100% signed properly and verified to run.
    This eliminates the possibility that it is a JVM issue. However after reading your message further I am afraid
    it is not relevant to your issue.
    due to the client authentication, my browser (Firefox, IE7) refuses to even download the applet.
    I went to your site, and I can see your applet in both Firefox and IE6. However, I don't believe your site is set up >quite like mine, because it appears I can run your applet whether I have imported your X509 certificate or not. What I >did was:If that is true we are all dead :) No I think you just missed the cert in the IE databse. It doesn't have to be in the
    Applet database to function. Surprise!
    Check your IE/tools/internet options/content tab/certificates/trusted root certification authorities.
    I then opened the Java control panel and verified that the certificate isn't listed there, either. So unless the certificate >is being cached/read from some other location (which could be, this certificate stuff is largely black magic to me), >then your server isn't requiring client authentication, either accidentally or by design.No HyperView is a valid java2 Applet and actually writes to a file "hyperview.dat" though it is probably empty.
    If you click on a component in the view and then on the view and type "dumpgobs" it shoud write out some data about the current graphics objects so you can see it has complete read/write access..
    Further it opens up a complete NIO server ands starts listening for connections on a random port
    (Echoed in your java console) You can connect to it with telnet and watch impressive ping messages all day :)
    This all goes back to a few years BTW back before there was a plugin and there was only Netscape & IE.
    There are actually 2 certificate databases and what loads where depends on which type of cert you are using. Now self signed or not doesn't matter but what does matter is the type of certificate. IE: is it RSA/DSA/Sha1
    etc. The Netscape DB was a Berkley DB and MS used whatever they use. The Cert is a DSA/Sha1 cert
    which I like the best ATM as it (X fingers it stays so) always has worked.
    Sadly that tidbit doesn't help you either I am afraid.
    What I'm trying to do is require client authentication through Apache by including the following markup in a virtual >host definition:
    SSLCACertificateFile D:/Certificates/ca.crt
    SSLVerifyClient require
    SSLVerifyDepth 1You got me there I avoid markup at all costs and only code in C java and assembler :)
    Now unless I am wrong I think you are saying that you want the Applet to push the certificate to the server
    automatically and I don't think this happens. Least I have never heard of this happening from an Applet automatically.
    On my client machine, I have a certificate which was generated using OpenSSL and the ca.crt file listed. Testing >shows that the server is requiring a certificate from the client, and the web browser is always providing it.
    The problem is that when the browser fires up the Java plugin to run an applet, there is not sufficient communication >between the browser and the plugin so that the plugin can obtain the certificate from the browser and provide it to >the server.
    So the server refuses to send the applet bytecode to the JVM, and we're stuck.In terms of implementation ease I think you may have the cart before the horse because I think it would be far easier to run an Applet in the first place to do the authentication, and then send, for example, a jar file to bootstrap and run
    (or some classes) in the event the connection is valid. Then again one never knows it all and there may be some classes which enables the plugin as you wish. I have never heard of this being done with the plugin the way you suggest.
    I am thinking maybe there is another method of doing this I do not know.
    Did you try pushing the cert via JavaScript/LIveConnect?? That way it could run before the Applet and do the authentication.
    Maybe someone else has other ideas; did you try the security forum??
    Sorry but I am afraid that is not much help.
    I did snarf this tidbit which may have some relevance
    The current fix for this bug in Mantis and 1.4.1_02 is using JSSE API, Here are the step:
    In Java control panel, Advanced tab -> Java Runtime Parameters, specify:
    -Djavax.net.ssl.keyStore=<name and path to client keystore file>
    -Djavax.net.ssl.keyStorePassword=<password to access this client keystore file>
    If it is a PKCS12 format keystore, specify:
    -Djavax.net.ssl.keyStoreType=PKCS12
    In our future JRE release 1.5, we will create our own client authentication keystore file for JPI and use that for client authentication, for detail info, please see RFE 4797512.

    How do I save and import my bookmarks from another hard drive? When I try to open the installed Firefox on the old drive, it (obviously) opens a browser from the new main drive, free of bookmarks. Is there a way I can save the bookmarks on the old drive without opening a browser?
    The guts of my computer were rearranged and I got a new main hard drive. My old one is still in there and I can get stuff from it, but when I go to the Mozilla folder on the old one, I can't figure out if there's anything I can do to get all my bookmarks from that drive to my new one, where Firefox is newly installed.

    If you open Firefox then Firefox will always use the default profile folder as found via profiles.ini on your system drive.
    You either need to import the file in your current default profile or copy the file to your current profile folder while Firefox is closed.
    Firefox 3 stores the bookmarks and the browser history in [http://kb.mozillazine.org/places.sqlite places.sqlite] and no longer creates an HTML backup by default.
    There are also (five) JSON backups in the bookmarkbackups folder within the Firefox profile folder.
    You can either copy the file places.sqlite to your [http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Firefox Firefox Profile Folder] or import the most recent JSON backup from the bookmarkbackups folder of that old profile.

    "Application Data" in XP/Win2K and "AppData" in Vista/Windows 7 are hidden folders.

    Go to: Control Panel > Folder Options > "View" tab > under "Hidden files and folders", select "Show hidden files and folders".

    You can do that in FCPX too, as all the things you cited are listed separately in the inspector.
    Here's a little gotcha. Let's say you've color corrected a few clips and you've applied an effect to one and want to paste it the other clips. You switch off color correction and copy the clip. You select the other clips and paste effects. What do you think happens? The effect is applied, but the color correction is applied as well, only it's switched off as it was in the first clip, so all the color correction on the other clips is lost. Fun, eh?
    I'll try to replicate your gotcha - but no, that doesn't sound like fun at all!

  • How do I prevent other Mac users from changing my Airport Extreme Network Name and Password within the Airport Utility?

    How do I prevent other Mac users from changing my Airport Extreme Network Name and Password within the Airport Utility?  My company is using an Airport Extreme in our office now and I want to prevent other employees from messing with the network/settings.  Is there a way to place a password on the settings to allow only the admin to access the network name and password? 

    Hi - you have will have to change the device passwords on all the base stations and then don't give them to anyone except the administrators and tell them not to save them on their computers that use the older versions of the Airport Utility - for the newer versions like the mobile apps, as soon as you enter the pasword it is saved and is visible in the advanced pane along with the network password - so if anyone gets a hold of your iPad or iPhone, they can edit the whole network - I have this same issue with my networks in the office and it is inconvenient but doable - I hope this helps

    And what kept you from posting a screenshot?
    I borrowed the image below for an HDR workshop I ran at the 2010 PSNZ National Convention, to demonstrate a method of removing halos.  You'll remember that halos were a serious problem with early HDR, and while the halos in this image were caused by over sharpening, they are perfect for demonstrating this technique.
    It relies on the fact that halos so often tend to put a lighter tone between the two areas where sharpening is being applied. Whether that is the sky abutting a dark line of hills, or the rock and little tower as in this image.  I've uploaded it at the size it was supplied to me at (about 2700 pixels wide).  So
    Click to open the full image, right click and copy, and paste into Photoshop.
    Select the clone tool, and set its blend mode to Darken.
    Try to sample on a line horizontal to where you want to clone, to give the best tonal match, and start cloning.
    Because the sky is darker than the halo, it overwrites it. But the rock is darker than the sky, so it has no affect.
    It works even better if you clone on a new layer also set to Darken.  No masking, just Photoshop blend mode magic.
    You can also fix the little tower. Use a great big brush — just remember to sample horizontal to match the horizon.
    Back then I was using the same trick with CAs after forgetting to fix them in ACR, and having done too much work to start again after spotting the problem.
