I have this too. And this seems to be the only page in the while internet that describes this, so I'm frustrated that there are no answers ;-(

I'm getting the same thing: I registered the dig cert with Firefox and Thunderbird, created a new doc, saved it, and tried to sign it but got a blank certificate. I'm using:

I have many certificates on my computer but the dialog shows only two; they are rather old and expired issued by the Tax Service. Under Firefox, they are listed on their own in an unusual tab (not Servers under which all others are listed, nor Authorities for root certificates). I don't know where they are stored and since I have no idea about their filename, I could not locate them.

I think the issue is related to certificate file format, expecting other than PEM?
