Imported certificate doesn't match certificate from file

I recently reinstalled Windows on my PC and I don't know if I saved my certificates the right way.
I took the .pfx files from the appdata location of Adobe and imported each one with:
Edit > Preferences > Signatures > Identities & Trusted Certificates > More > Add ID

The import worked, the certificate appears in the list, but when I open a file signed with that certificate some functionalities are disabled (clearing a signature for example).
Right-click on the signature opens a menu without the "Clear signature" button and right-click on a empty space inside the signatures panel shows the "Clear all signatures" button, but it is grayed out.
