Click OK and that’s it! FireFox will ask you where you want to save the PFX file – save it anywhere. The file is portable and can now be copied to any computer. Additional Note : FireFox might save the file with a .p12 extension – that’s OK! Just rename the file to .pfx and you can use it with any of the code signing tools.
