Hi, folks,

   Up until a few weeks ago, it worked as it has been for years: firefox,
security device is libcoolkey, and pcscd.

   Today, I go to use it (I have done updates sine I last used it), and
try preferences->advanced->certificates, and it hangs. My most recent
try was for over 20 min. If you move something over the window, then
move it away, it's a blank window. Pull out the card, and *some* of the
time, it pops up the window showing no certs, having never asked for a
PIN. The rest of the time, firefox crashes, hard.

   I know the pcscd part works - I used it via a script this morning from
the command line, as does pkcs15-tool from the command line.

   Anyone got any clues? Maybe I should downgrade (if I can) firefox?
