problem when importing CRL into Firefox


I am wondering how to import a CRL generated by my certification authority into Firefox

I did the following:

openssl ca -gencrl -out my_crl.pem
and then converted into DER
openssl crl -in my_crl.pem -outform der -out my_crl.crl
When importing into Firefox I get an error message: The browser cannot import the Certificate Revocation List (CRL). Error
importing CRL to local Database. Error Code:ffffe009

There is no problem to import it into IE

If I try to use the default PEM format, it does not work either.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for your help

I know that this is probably a bit late, but I've just had the same issue.

After I've changed the signature algorithm from sha-256 to md5 Firefox 3.6 was actually able to import my CRL!

So my guess is that the 'Error Importing CRL to local Database. Error Code:ffffe006' implies that Firefox doesn't understand the Hashing/Signature algorithm!

I hope this helps
