In Mozilla for every certificate of a Certification Authority (CA) the user must choose a level of trust. This is done by selecting the certificate and clicking on Edit Trust. The easiest way to do this setting for the certificate "InfoNotary CSP Root" and/or "InfoNotary TSP Root" select two possible options. This will make all the InfoNotary trusted certificates for all operations.
