In the case of Firefox it has its own certificate store, the other browsers
use the operating system's store (on Windows and Mac at least).

But curl typically doesn't use those but instead uses a separate store.

It depends. On most linux (like) distros, the OS will keep the cert store in
shape when you update that, in other situations you may need to update a
private store every now and then. Possibly from the one we provide on the curl
