Hi Stefan,

I already had imported certificate CAcert.org root class3, but 
nevertheless access of PMBS failes.
The solution was to remove my local Firefox configuration from 
~/.mozilla and to "reinstall" my config
(extensions, bookmarks,...) and to import the CAcert certificates.
Now I have access to PMBS again (In Chromium the certificates were 
missing, my fault).
