Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 87706
Superfluous security warning when going from https to https in a new window
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:52:39 EDT
Description of problem:
Mozilla gives a warning dialog when I click I open a link in a new window or new
tab, where both the original page and the newly opened one are secure ( https )
and from the same server.
The dialog show is :
You have requested an encrypted page. The web site has identified itself
correctly, and information you see or enter on this page can't easily be read by
[ ] Alert me whenever I am about to view an encrypted page.
[ OK ]
This is needless and annoying. This dialog should be only displayed when going
from unsecure to secure pages. And maybe when going from one secure site to another.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. visit a secure site, like https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/index.cgi
2. right click on any link that points to another page on the same site, like
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/redhat-faq.cgi ( the "Help" link at the
bottom ), and select "Open Link in New Window" or "Open Link in New Tab", you
can also middle click
security warning dialog appears
If this gets fixed upstream, I'll take it but I'm not going to spend time on it.
