I have a ton of testing projects going on in my localhost apache server. I have SSL installed on my localhost. Call me a freak (and I wouldn't mind it because this is totally pointless), but I would like my localhost's SSL to be an EV SSL with the green bar. So how can i make a self-signed EV/Green Bar SSL certificate for my localhost? And how can i teach my FireFox to recognize it? Thanks in advance!

You can't. EV certificates can only be issued by some certificate agencies which are hard coded inside the browser.

    Technically, you can roll your own cert bundle by forking the browser. – Deer Hunter Jun 6 '14 at 4:36

    @DeerHunter: Sure, you could also change the source code of the browser to show the green bar whenever you like. But that probably wasn't the point of the question. – Steffen Ullrich Jun 6 '14 at 7:15

    @SteffenUllrich Yes. It is crazy, but I want to make the browser just show the green bar. – Coach0512 Jun 6 '14 at 12:43

    You might also try to create a CA (and import it as trusted) with the right OID and then issue a certificate with this CA. See stackoverflow.com/questions/14705157/… which OIDs are used to detect EV. – Steffen Ullrich Jun 6 '14 at 12:55
