Note also that from Mozilla under RH Linux 8.0 I always get the message 
"The Document Contains No Data" when trying to log into RHN, Bugzilla, and 
other RedHat specific pages.

I am perfectly able to log into RHN (or Bugzilla, as I am now) from a Windows 
PC using Internet Explorer.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

 Using Mozilla 1.0.1-24 i386

How reproducible:

Always on my PC
Just clicking on the Question/Net Activity/Checkmark button.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click on check mark
2.Click on "Register with RHN"
3.Click on "Launch."  Check mark turns to question mark and generates the 
error noted above.
Actual results:

Expected results:

If you can't connect from that machine to the web service, but that a Windows
machine on the same network can, this probably means there is a need for a
proxy on your network. Please check with your network administrator, you
may have to configure the proxy, either when configuring the applet or
when registering the machine to RHN. You can also try to set the proxy 
informations in the RHN config files under /etc/sysconfig/rhn/ ,  up2date
and rhn_register are the files you may have to edit.

This is more than one year old and I didn't got any error report
about this since, I think this can safely be closed.
