That answers my first question, what tracker.debian.org is
authenticating against. I might have forgotten, but the error message
about my certificating being expired comes well before anything
belonging to tracker.d.o coming up, so I am cut off from the actual
web page that might contain the information.

This said, Firefox in unstable doesn't allow certificate enrollment
any more, it just says that <keygen> is not supported any moe.

The wiki page doesn't give enough information for me to understand how
to continue. I'd rather have the page saying more explicitly "sorry,
you have do use OpenSSL on the command line to use Firefox here", if I
interpret the evidence correctly. I still hope that I'm wrong.

Can you please explain that? I didn't mean to attack anybody but
