document signing broken?

Don Lewis-2
I'm working on an upgrade to the bundled nss.  I got a successful build
on Debian 9, but when I tried to sign a document, OpenOffice didn't see
the self-signed certificate that I imported into Firefox.  Thinking that
the nss upgrade broke something, I backed out my changes, rebuilt, and
reinstalled.  I still don't see my certificate in the Select Certificate
dialog.  Is anyone else seeing this?

This works with the FreeBSD port of a recent snapshot of AOO42X.  It
uses the system nss library, which is even more modern than the version
I'm trying to upgrade to.

Hi Don,

I also have the issue that I can't see my latest certificate on Ubuntu
16.04. Only my old expired ones are listed.
This is with AOO 4.1.7.

On Windows all imported certificates are visible and signing works as
expected.

Regards,

   Matthias

I lost my old firefox profiles some time ago (on FreeBSD) and my Linux
testing has been on recently built machines / VMs, so I don't have any
old certficats installed in firefox.  It turns out that Mozilla changed
the database implementation a while back, and you appear to be seeing
some old certs in your legacy database.

nss can support both database versions.  If I change the default:
  export NSS_DEFAULT_DB_TYPE=sql
then OpenOffice trunk can see the new certificates I just added.  I'll
do some further investigation to see how to either change the default or
possibly look both places.

The Windows implementation is different under the hood.

That explains it. The last certificate I can see in AOO expired in July
2018.

Both places would be ideal. (In fact, I can see all certificates in Firefox)

We should also cherry-pick it for 4.1.8.
