I'm trying to make the options that appears in thunderbird to use OCSP validation. In thunderbird, i can choose that if the certificate has an OCSP URL, i don't have to specify the OCSP server url, because i suppose that thunderbird is extracting that url and certificate CA.

How can i extract that OCSP URL and CA? is it something related to NetscapeRevokeURL?

No, netscape extensions are not applied.
RFC 2560 says, that information about OCSP is contained in AuthorityInfoAccess extension.

See TElAuthorityInformationAccessExtension class for more information.
