May depend what version of Mozilla you're using. Until a few months ago,
it came with the capability, but you had to download and install PSM
(personal security manager) separately (with debug->install PSM off the
menu along the top). I found a nightly that worked perfectly for my needs 
almost all the time and stopped grabbing nightlies then. But I know that 
PSM now comes with Mozilla. 

With Mozilla and that PSM stuff, there used to be a couple of sites you
could visit to check it was working. I would generally check by going to 
http://fortify.net and testing it worked on that; if then it started
playing up on other sites, it was bugzilla time :)
