Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 202966
seamonkey fails to retrieve https URLs on x86_64
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:40 EST
Description of problem:
cannot open SSL pages
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open browser
2. navigate to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/index.cgi (or any https url)
This document cannot be displayed unless you install the Personal Security
Manager (PSM). Download and install PSM and try again, or contact your system
The site responded to the network request in an unexpected way and the browser
Firefox on the same machine has no problem opening the url.
SELinux is disabled.
This does not appear to happen on my i686 box.
Same problem on x86-32 (P III ), FC5.
I suspect this is the same as bug 201922.
The solution is to update the nss package to the latest available update package.
On your system, do you still have nss-3.11-4 installed?
Please update to nss-3.11.1-1 or later.
Unfortunately, updating the nss package may not be sufficient, you'll also have
to locate the file "compreg.dat" in your profile directory (below ~/.mozilla).
This combined should fix it. If this helps you, please report in this bug.
We are currently discussing how to prevent this bug in the future, and ensure
that newer seamonkey/firefox releases will automatically pull in the required
Upgrading the library was sufficient. Thanks.
Upgrading the nss file was sufficient for x86-32, P-III FC5... thanks.
The seamonkey package has been updated to depend on a newer version of NSS.
Users updating to seamonkey-1.0.5-0.5.fc5 will automatically get a newer NSS lib
and this bug will be fixed for them
