How do I reset my certificate profile on Firefox on Athena?
If you have forgotten your master password, or your profile has become corrupted, you will need to reset it. Note that doing so will delete any certificates saved in Firefox, as well as any website login information you have asked Firefox to remember.

and follow the instructions to delete your Firefox certificates.
