Description

17 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.4) Gecko/20010917
BuildID:    20010917

I just installed the latest version of Mozilla, and whenever I navigate to a
secure link (https:// style) it just does nothing at all.  This happens when I'm
submitting a form to an https link, when I'm redirected to one, and simply when
I try to visit one.  It's very strange behaviour.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take Mandrake 8.1
2. Install the Mozilla RPMs for 0.9.4 onto there (to replace the existing
mozilla 0.9.3).. using --nodeps and --replacefiles.
3. Try visiting a site with a https:// URL.


Actual Results:  Nothing happens

Expected Results:  It should have navigated to the site.

Did you install the Personal Security Manager, PSM?
The redhat version begins with mozilla-psm-*
I assume Mandrake packagers follow the same structure.

invalid. https requires PSM. please install the PSM rpm.

Yes, it required psm.  But surely it should give some kind of end-user 
notification rather than just hanging.  Does the website give any information 
about psm being a required download?  I didn't know it existed until I hit the 
ftp site.

This is actually a dup of bug 47617, "Connection to https needs to tell user to 
install PSM if w/o".

Not a dup. The summary here reads "Browser just won't navigate to https:// links"
A fix for bug 47617 would likely cause prevent that bugs like this were filed in
the first place, but it's not a dup as such. There are ...trunkloads of these
scattered around in Bugzilla, so a fix for 47617 would be a good thing. The
issue is now in the 0.9.5 release notes.
