I'm using Kali on Windows. I downloaded the Burp Suite and I'm trying to install its SSL certificate onto the Iceweasel browser.

Burp Suite, the leading toolkit for web application security testing

But when I go to import the certificate file, it doesn't show up. I saved the file onto the desktop.

Here's a screenshot:

Change the dropdown above "open" that says "Certificate Files" to "All files". – jordanm Apr 21 '14 at 3:21

You have the file on your desktop, but it has no extension, and you are filtering by extension ("Certificate Files" is selected in the filetype dropdown, and this probably filters to common certificate extensions). Either rename the file to have the correct extension (probably .pem), or change the dropdown to say "All files" or similar.
