Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (OS/2; U; Warp 4.5; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20030919
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (OS/2; U; Warp 4.5; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20030919

Note.  I saw a similar bug saying that there is a problem if the local clock is
off.  I reset my clock with NIST before entering this, so a clock discrepancy on
the client should not be the problem.

When connecting to any app that wants a userid and password (esp. on-line
banking), I get an pop-up alert

This problem is new with 1.5 RC1.
I have no problem with 1.3, 1.4, or even a 1.5 beta from August 28.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.try to open web site (e.g. URL shown above)
2.
3.

Actual Results:  
pop up Alert showing error message "error trying validate certificate from ...
using OCSP - response contains a date which is in the future"

Expected Results:  
what it used to do - accept certificate and display the web page with the logon
prompt.

I think Bugs 224443, 220740, 224593, & 188986 are duplicates.

Jim & Walter: Have you guys installed the LIBC04FIX1 libraries
(http://download.innotek.de/gccos2/runtime/libc04fix1.zip)?  This was a fix for
the incorrect time in MailNews when using LIBC04.  Maybe you guys are seeing the
same thing.

I'm not Jim or Walter, but I did try your advice here with the 1.6 Alpha on OS/2
and it cures the problem.

A BLESSING UPON THEE, YOUNG MAN!

I guess we can't definitively close this one (and the others I noted above)
until 1.6 General Availability comes out.

I have now updated LIBC04.DLL as suggested by 
pedemont@us.ibm.com and the problem is gone.  I tested this 
with Mozilla 1.5 and Firebird 0.7 and it fixed both of 
them.  So I deduce that there was no bug in the actual 
Mozilla code after all.

Nothing in Mozilla was broken or fixed.
