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
browsers:

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:

http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/certs/included/

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 http://perspectives-project.org/
