Firefox cannot initialize the application’s security component.

I have noticed this alert showing up when I start Firefox. After experimenting,  I have found the solution.  On a Mac go into th ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles directory and cd into your profile’s directory.  Remove the cert8.db file and restart Firefox. Firefox will regenerate a new file and sites that use https will start working again.
