Description

When renewing a self-signed CA entry or self-signed certificate in the GUI the serial number is not replaced with a new one. The main example of this is the automatic GUI cert, which has a serial of 0 before and 0 after renewal.

Since the serial is not replaced, some clients such as Firefox reject the cert change if the old one was stored (e.g. SEC_ERROR_REUSED_ISSUER_AND_SERIAL error).

Since it's self-signed the serial can be randomized safely.

The serial is replaced as expected when renewing a regular certificate.
