[arch-general] CA certifcates

some months ago i needed to setup a Certificate Authority and add it's root
certificate to the client machines, so i figured out and added the CA
certificate to /usr/share/ca-certificates, edited the
/etc/ca-certificates.conf to reflect this and them run
"update-ca-certificates --fresh --verbose".

this added the CA to the SSL certs and generated the file with all the
certificates in /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt

So when i used Firefox and Chrome, it reflected this and the server
certificate was validated.

But... This week, after a system upgrade both Firefox and Chrome, stopped
to reflect this, even after i did all the above process again.

Firefox and Chrome are not using the ca-certificates package? Is there a
way to do what i'm trying to do (a central point to manage certificates for
all apps, especially browsers)?

And, a last question, is there a way to run a script after a specific
package upgrade?
