From Bugzilla Helper:

Tabbed browsing and SSL encryption interact badly.  It seems that having a tab
open to a non-encrypted site will prevent SSL entryption from being turned on in
a second tab in the same window.

Reproduce:
Start mozilla
Go to https://www.firstunion.com/FrontLineLogin.html without any tabs
Note that View -> Page info -> security says encryption is enabled.
Open a second tab and go to the same url, now there are two tabs, both with
encryption enabled.
Now, replace the contents of the first tab with freshmeat (http://freshmeat.net).
Now, notice that the second tab no longer has the lock icon, and View -> Page
Info -> Security says the connection is not encrypted.

Similar results can be had by starting mozilla, going to freshmeat first, then
opening a second tab and going to the https url.  Mozilla says that no
encryption enabled in the second tab.


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See description above.


Actual Results:  Mozilla either claimed to drop encryption on the connection, or
claimed that encryption was never enabled for the connection.

Expected Results:  https tabs should not be sensitive to other tabs containing
http links.

Mozilla id: Mozilla 0.9.7

Binary downloaded by mozilla installer from mozilla home site.
