Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 267841
firefox-18.104.22.168 or newer will not load websites via https
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:35 EDT
Description of problem:
ANY version of firefox newer than 22.214.171.124 will NOT load a website that requires
https. I grabbed every rpm I could find from 126.96.36.199 to the newest 188.8.131.52 and
NONE of them could load any website that required https. 184.108.40.206 does. I'm
fairly certain this is a Fedora specific problem since the same versions of FF
running on XP, FreeBSD and MacOS work just fine on secure sites.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
firefox-220.127.116.11 or newer
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open firefox 18.104.22.168 or newer
2. Go to a site requiring https
3. FF says it cannot load the page.
Unexpected response from server
Firefox doesn't know how to communicate with the server.
* Check to make sure your system has the Personal Security Manager installed.
* This might be due to a non-standard configuration on the server.
Load the website, like all prior versions did.
Running FC5 system freshly installed from DVD on a dual-cpu Dell Optiplex SX280.
Is nss getting installed properly?
Yes, I did install the latest nss rpm (which was not included in the ff rpm).
Still can't view any websites via https.
