 In Tor Browser 4.0.8 (windows) I was unable to import certificates until I
 changed preference security.nocertdb to false (#13366).  I tried the
 directions in #13353 but disabling private browsing mode didn't work to
 enable the certificate storage.

 There is no warning that certificate storage is disabled. When you add a
 certificate nothing happens. Also when you view a site with an
 unrecognized certificate the 'Confirm Security Exception' button does
 nothing. Please consider making some changes to add a message box "This
 feature will not work with the current settings because foo. To enable
 this feature do bar."
