Accessing PKI Hardware in Firefox/Thunderbird on Ubuntu/Debian

What you will need

apt-get install mozilla-opensc libopensc1

How to tell Firefox/Thunderbird about OpenSC

It's quite easy to tell Firefox/Thunderbird that you have hardware PKI devices attached, the directions are the same for both programs the directions below are acurate as of Firefox version 1.0.4.

After you click ok a few times and you should now have a useable PKI key pair on a working crypto device which you can use to decrypt/encrypt/sign emails and authenticate against websites. In future we'll be attempting to come up with ways to make this easier for people.
