Slightly off-topic for this list, but on unix-like systems, you can 
force Firefox to use the system store of X.509 certificates (in 
/etc/ssl/certs) by replacing Firefox’s libnssckbi.so library by the 
libp11-kit.so library from the p11-kit project [1,2].

This also works with Thunderbird and with LibreOffice.
