In my Thunderbird, I have a quite long list of people there. They must 
have been added automatically by TB.

In my Firefox profile, which is quite old (years), I have 0 entries there.

I.e.: What Brian said.

(Note "Your certificates" and "Server certs" is useful in Firefox, in 
part because of HTTPS client verification.)
