NSS from Javascript

P: n/a
How can I use NSS (Network Security Services) from Mozilla/Firefox
Javascript?

I'm trying to sign some data using a private key in Javascript. I know
the crypto module should allow that with the signText method, but some
of the crypto methods seem to be broken, raising Not Implemented
exceptions.

Is there another way of signing data from Javascript?

XPCOM components in Mozilla are listed here:

Which component or interface are you trying to use?
I think signText was implemented somewhere before 1.7:
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=29152>

But when it comes to very Mozilla specific stuff then it seems better to
pick an appropriate group on news.mozilla.org and ask there than here in
comp.lang.javascript.
