Mozilla and FF both either never error out or give a blank page when trying to use HTTP to access an HTTPS site. Steps to reproduce: 1. Attempt to load an SSL site/port but with http:// rather than https:// . Actual results: Either about:blank is rendered as the page (FF) or the page is never rendered / an error message is never given (Suite). Expected results: An error message detailing the problem.

I don't think this bug should be assigned to the PSM module. When the http protocol has been requested by the link, then no PSM code is active at all, therefore no fix to PSM could ever make it work. If you want to fix this, you must enhance the http code to be smart and detect non-http server ports.

kai: you are right. I don't know what I was thinking... 4 years ago :)
Summary: Mozilla times out when using HTTP to access an SSL site → no error when using HTTP to access an SSL site
Most modern SSL sites return plaintext HTTP when they get HTTP requests instead of client hellos
