Torbutton prevents from exporting certificates

Description (last modified by mikeperry)

While Torbutton is activated in my Firefox browser, exporting personal certificates becomes impossible.

Instead of displaying the passphrase dialog before exporting the PKCS#12 exchange file, an alert box states that
the certificate export fails for an "unknown reason".

This problem appears only when the torbutton is installed and enabled in the session. It disappear when the torbutton is
disabled (or uninstalled, of course). It impacts only the personal (with private key) certificate, not root certificates.

In order to reproduce the problem, you should import a personal email certificate from thawte.com (it's free)
or cacert.org (it's free too, but need to import a root certificate to recognize cacert).

At least, you should update the FAQ / troubleshooting topic advising to disable temporarily torbutton when user has to
export his certificates.

Version: 1.2.1Torbutton: 1.2.1

Updating the version from 1.2.1 to Torbutton: 1.2.1 so I can close #1743.
