Galeon appears not to want to access any sites using the https:// protocol.
 http:// works fine, but whenever I click on a link (or enter a URL
directly in the location entry) which uses https, galeon just silently does

Do you have mozilla-psm installed?

Comment 2 chris 2001-12-12 14:57:18 UTC
Duh - sorry!  You're quite right: I didn't, but now I do, and now it works. Thanks.

On the subject, though, doing nothing silently isn't a great failure mode. Would
it be possible for Galeon (or Mozilla) to say something slightly more verbose,
so that people like me know that they need to install mozilla-psm?

Thinking about it, why is the SSL support in a separate package anyway? Are
there really people out there who want Mozilla without it?
Thanks again,

Comment 3 Christopher Blizzard 2001-12-12 18:50:43 UTC
There are people out there that might not want SSL installed.  Plus, it needs to
be seperate for export control reasons.  I don't know about galeon but there was
a patch checked into Mozilla just in the last day or so that actually says that
SSL isn't installed (finally.)
