import certificates via command line - Firefox

is there any way under Fedora to import certs to Firefox from the terminal?

theres a website [using https] with a self-signed certificate, and i'm just wondering, how could someone "set it throu ssh" [on the clients], so that the "This Connection is Untrusted" sign doesn't appear on the clients

Thank you!

Perhaps the certificate import procedure for Sylpheed that I describe here will
be relevant:

Note that I have no idea if a similar procedure applies to Firefox, but it
might give you a starting point.

If you want to auto-accept certificates in Firefox, then you need to

If you want to push certificates into the Firefox cert8.db, then you
