FIPS mode is broken in Mozilla 1
.7 RC 1 .
The FIPS mode of the NSS software cryptograhic module is broken in Mozilla 1.7 RC 1. 1) If FIPS mode was originally enabled, the browser can't initialize its security component. 2) If FIPS mode was originally disabled, you can't enable FIPS mode. The steps to reproduce 2) are: - Open Edit -> Preferences... -> Privacy & Security -> Certificates -> Manage Security Devices - In the Device Manager window, select "NSS Internal PKCS #11 Module" - Click on the "Enable FIPS" button. Nothing happens.
The cause of this failure is that softokn3.dll was modified (most likely stripped of debug information) without regenerating the softokn3.chk check file using shlibsign.
Leaf, we goofed in the build automation for talkback.

wan-teh, is this windows only, or windows and linux, or just linux?
I've only tried Mozilla 1.7 RC 1 on Windows, so the status of Linux or Mac OS X is unknown.
I see the problem; the build system uses whatever "rebase" is first in the path. currently, that's cygwin's version... which causes the build target after rebasing (signing the nss lib) to never get reached. Tomorrow's builds should be fixed.
