Description

17 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.4+) Gecko/20010919
BuildID:    2001091908

If you go to a https: site and click on a https: link, but press ESC
immediately, you get a spurious Security Warning dialog saying that you are
leaving encrypted mode (as long as you haven't disabled that warning).

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. If necessary, create a new profile to ensure that this warning dialog will appear
2. Go to https://sourceforge.net/
3. Click on login via SSL on left hand side
4. Very quickly press the ESC key

Actual Results:  The standard Security Warning dialog appears that tells you you
are leaving encrypted mode - but you aren't! Sometimes the page continues to
load in the background.

Expected Results:  Not display the dialog.

Bug still here in build 2001102806. You have to be quite quick. If necessary
slow down mozilla.

Also, the security icon now displays as insecure for the loaded page - but the
URL bar displays the https: URL. Upgrading from trivial to minor.
Severity: trivial → minor

I can reproduce this bug. Pressing ESC did not cause the problem, but clicking
the stop button did it.

This bug is due to the current implementation approach of the security state
tracking. This will behave correctly, after bug 62178 has been fixed.
