When you setup a site with a certificate, you can go to a veritable
certificate agency and buy one, for good money. Then it will work
straight in any browser.

Or you can buy it from a cheaper agency - but it may happen that the
said agency does not have its master certificate installed in all


Why the Spanish agency (FNMT) certificate is not included in FF list?
No idea, perhaps because they did not bother to ask, perhaps because
it is valid for Spain only...

I am getting the feeling that what you are trying to imply is that
Firefox has some sort of a list of certificates installed as part of
FF itself. It doesn't.

Yes it does. Preferences->Advanced->Encryption->View Certificates

That opens the certificate manager which under "Authorities" will show
you the collection of root certificates that is shipped with FF.

The list is also available here:

Just like NoScript, AdBlock, etc. this side of security is controlled
by an Extension called PERSPECTIVES which contains a database of sites
which are considered "safe".

That is something else, see
