Hello Bernhard,

Yes, I fear I hit not the submitters problem in #924050 and
attached the wrong information to that bug, that would match better
to this bug.

No, there was neither /etc/pki/nssdb nor a firefox profile in the
home directory. But even after installation of firefox-esr I had no
directory /etc/pki/nssdb in my test VM.

Kind regards,
