Huh? How do you get one with spaces? I don't see any path in the list of checked
dirs which has spaces? and the subdirs of it don't have either, do they?

Hmm. Under which circumstances does this happen for you?
I don't see a problem here. Because: If a matching dir is
found, the next loop iteration does nothing.

head -1 is broken. It is head -n 1. What is this for btw?
Does ~/.firefox for example has two cert8.dbs? Probably not.

The only way I can see for multiple cert8.dbs (assuming every profile has
only one) is when it searches ~/.mozilla. But it shouldn't reach there
if you use Firefox or an up-to-date Mozilla (which afaik - don't use it - uses
~/.mozilla/default. At least I never saw a cert8.db in ~/.mozilla/<random>...)
[ Yes, ~/.mozilla-thunderbird is missing and will be added in the next upload, will then be
for d in $HOME/.mozilla/firefox $HOME/.firefox $HOME/.mozilla-thunderbird $HOME/.mozilla/default $HOME/.mozilla; do ]

What are you using? Firefox? Thunderbird? Mozilla Suite? Which version(s)?

I currently don't see a problem but it also might be I either am assuming something which is not
true in all cases or I oversee something.

Digital signatures. Which needs the certificates from Mozilla and therefore needs
to know where the Mozilla profile is.
