At my site all https requests must go through a proxy server, but there's
currently no way to set the name of your https proxy server in the UI.
If I set the http (no s) proxy server to the correct value (at my site the http 
and https proxy servers are the same) and try to 
visit any https page, the browser times out after about a minute and doesn't
display the https page.
i think this is a dupe of 31164.  i will add your comments to that report.

not a dupe.

This bug (31174) is https doesn't work through
            proxy - not psm window can't open because of proxy. I have a
            proxy and i can still view https sites through it. I just can't
            change my psm preferences in that new window that pops up when
            you click on the lock icon - (which I filed as bug 31164)
Resolution: DUPLICATE → ---
The PSM SDK now provides API to create a secure proxy connection.  The 
secure proxy connection should go through PSM to succeed.  There is a function 
that opens a connection to a secure proxy server (note that it starts out as a 
cleartext connection), and the other that "turns on" security on the socket.  
The protocol handler should be able to use these functions to implement the 
secure proxy.
So, who's the owner of the https protocol handler?
Ever confirmed: true

fyi I can duplicate the bug with 2000031412 on Win98.  I did a sniffer trace and
it definately is not sending https: data through the proxy (nor DNS lookups for
https connections).
CCing some people, who might know, who owns the https code.

Part #3 of this bug (actually using the proxy setting) is near code I've 
recently been changing due to socks stuff. I've enabled the PSM proxy code
in the SSL IO layer, so I wouldn't be surprised if adding the code to 
nsProtocolProxyService is all you need to do. The proxy settings should get 
through to the io layer, which should do the right thing with them. I'll look 
over it again, just to make sure there's nothing left out.

Also, I can add the UI and config code in about 10 minutes if you want me to 
take care of this bug entirely.
Assigning to gagan per PDT.

justin: go ahead. thx.
From what I can tell, the transport gets and uses the proxy info (part #3)

I think the problem people are seeing here is that mozilla is trying
to talk in SSL to the proxy server. And based on the description
of the reporter's set-up, the proxy server doesn't speak in SSL.

If that's the case, then this is really a duplicate of bug 40203.

We can do HTTP proxy with SSL in two ways:
1) mozilla speaks SSL to the proxy, and does a normal GET http://foo/ proxy 
2) mozilla speaks cleartext with the proxy, does a CONNECT foo:port, and then 
starts up SSL and writes the request to the dest host directly (which is what 
bug 40203 implements)

I can't imagine we'll see number 1 often, so how about we always take path 2.
And if we do so, what's the purpose in a separate SSL proxy server 
Thanks for your help Justin. 
ruslan/dougt: do you guys have more info on this CONNECT call question from 
justin? Can me make it always be that way? Seems like an ok thing to do but I 
don't know enough about this to make that call.

Verified duplicate.
I updated, installed PSM, restarted Mozilla, verified that the Security Manager
shows up correctly, verified that the proxy is correctly shown in
Prefs|Advanced|Proxies|SSL and stored in prefs.js (

user_pref("network.proxy.ssl", "myproxy");
user_pref("network.proxy.ssl_port", 1111);

) and tried to load <> (and other SSL
pages), but I get

* Unsupported Request Method and Protocol

I believe you need to set one more pref. It's called netwerk.*.ssl.connect or 
smth like that. Please retest with it.
What is it for? Anyway, neither true nor false work.
it's called "network.http.proxy.ssl.connect", default false BTW.

I tried to set "network.http.proxy.ssl.connect" to true on 2000072809 and still
got "GET https://..." delivered in clear text to my proxy (squid).

Second. How much proxies do speak in SSL? I know no such (because technically it
is [near to] imposible to create [good] one) , while CONNECT understand most.
So, please, make use CONNECT default if https proxy setting is set.

The estimation in the status whiteboard is propbaly wrong now.

Could somebody please tell, what I'm supposed to do in order to create a SSL
connection to a webserver over a usual proxy (e.g. squid)? I should work, right?
As per
provided with bug 40203 program hould

1) establish tcp/ip connection to https port;
2) send "CONNECT hostname:portnum HTTP/1.0\n"
3) optionally send "User-agent: bla bla bla\n"
4) optionally send "Proxy-authorization: basic hidenPasswd\n"
5) send "\n"
6) receive HTTP responce header "HTTP/1.0 200 Connection
established\nProxy-agent: squid/1.23\n\n" all until empty line
7) on that connection speak SSL as like just established direct connection with
SSL server.

I just checked with my squid - this scenario works.
Have a good look!

Is anyone seeing something even similar?
Nitin, that url is a website for you to visit. Then select a proxy server and 
add it to your http proxy prefs.
John, testing with public proxies is pointless. Setup a private network (with or so addresses) without direct connection to the internet, but only
to the proxy. Run standard Squid on port 6543 (i.e. an arbitary one). Set http,
ftp and ssl proxy prefs in Mozilla to that machine/port. Open

closing this since in general proxies work for SSL which is this bug. John would 
open the other bug but this should be closed.

I disagree that it should be closed.  A specific case was given as an aid to the 
developer to know when they got it fixed.  I'm sure its not the only case where 
there is a problem.  I have yet to be able to successfully use mozilla to make a 
secure connection via the citibank proxy which runs on port 80.  (btw, I've been 
trying mozilla for over a year, and have been anxious to see https over a 
non-ssl proxy get implemented.)  (yes I've got the lastest PSM) This is a 
dogfood problem for me, since I can't use Mozilla at work because the nature of 
my work involves secure sites. (I support some credit card web sites and would 
like to run mozilla to access them to see if we or mozilla have any issues...but 
I can't - except from home)
Gagan, I'm confused, could you please give a list of "known" working proxies:
* Product name, version, platform
* which ports they work on (whatever standard ports and two arbitrary)
* whether we speak CONNECT or GET

Is this working for anyone in a large corporation outside of Netscape?
timeless: I am only going by john's comments above. 
Ruslan: can you re-verify this? Seems like people are still having problems with 
SSL proxy connections. Thx.

I don't know how to argue more cogently than this, so here goes:

PUH-LEEEEEEEZ fix this for PR 3!

For any company that sits behind a firewall and uses proxies to get to the 
outside world (Sun is one example; I'm guessing there are others, but am not 
personally familiar with any other examples), the existence of this bug prevents 
those N6/Mozilla customers from using secure sites outside the firewall.  It's 
actually worse than that in the normal case: even for secure sites *inside* a 
corporate firewall, the browser will often not work.  The reason: in enterprises 
where many prefs are pre-set for the end user, prefs will be set to use a proxy 
for SSL support, but the corresponding "Ignore proxies for these domains..." 
pref will not be set.  So, even though it's not necessary to go through a proxy 
to get from one internal site to another, the proxy settings will force the 
browser to use that proxy, thereby disabling the end user's ability to visit 
internal secure sites.

Imagine trying to do your work at your company without having access to your 
daily secure web apps (corporate phone book, expense report tool, org chart, 
secure email, payroll app, benefits chooser, etc.).

I can only argue veridically for Sun, but I'm guessing this is a show-stopper 
for other companies as well.  For Sun, it means another two months that the 
company has to wait before switching to N6 as the default internal browser.

With this bug fixed, we have support from the company CEO (more than support, 
I'd say: significant pressure) to switch to the Netscape 6 browser as the 

To summarize: it'd be Real Nice if this bug were fixed for PR 3.  If there's 
anything I can do to help, I'm willing to try my best.
Sun is definitely not the only company with a proxy requirement. I'd guess (I
have no stats at all) that 10-25% of the users are in a similar situation.

Ruslan, your changes look ok to me, although I'm unclear on why you need
strncasecmps when comparing URI schemes.  If you are comparing scheme to scheme,
you should use strcasecmp.  If you're comparing scheme to full URI string, don't
you need to insist on the the : (in case someone used a scheme such as
httpsnotreally: at the front of a URI)?

From ruslan's comments at 2000-09-22 17:10, I understand that this patch is

are we sure that only ssl requests are not going through a proxy. I just setup a  
proxy server and netscape6 could not even 
go to I removed the setting from the prefs and I could  
surf fine.
I have applied the patch on Windows 2000 and rebuilt.

Trying to access a secure site the proxy (squid) tells me:

970209736.544   1402 xx.xx.xx.xx TCP_MISS/000 1366 CONNECT
3 - DIRECT/ -

So the browser is correctly issuing CONNECT insted of POST. 

But no further loading of the site itself. In the status line it says Document: 
Done. I can refresh as often as I would but it will not load.

changing product to browser.  this isn't a psm/client lib bug.  this is a
networking bug.. more to follow
Component: Client Library → Networking

Version: 1.3 → other
so here is what I see:

we send:
=== Start

Host: aka
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16 i686; en-US; m18) Gecko/20000918
Accept: */*
Accept-Language: en
Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate,compress,identity
Keep-Alive: 300
Connection: keep-alive

=== End

we get back 
200 Connection established
from the server...

so all is good up to here.  then we step up the proxy connection (which goes ok)
then we send:
=== Start
GET https://aka/ HTTP/1.1
Host: aka
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16 i686; en-US; m18) Gecko/20000918
Accept: */*
Accept-Language: en
Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate,compress,identity
Keep-Alive: 300
Connection: keep-alive

=== End
and from here things go down hill....

we flush the buffer out again incase we have anything, then we get into:
nsHTTPRequest::OnStopRequest() [this=426049d8]. wasKeptAlive=0, channelStatus=0

the AsyncRead call in here returns failure, so we call in to ResponseCompleted
with a failure status which leads us to report a (bogus) error loading the page.

nsHTTPChannel::ResponseCompleted() [this=423fce00]  mDataListenet=426b4fb0,
nsHTTPFinalListener::OnStopRequest [this=426b4fb0], mOnStopFired=0
Error loading URL https://aka/: 804b000f 
shortly after this point, we get back from the server:

=== Start
HTTP/1.1 404 Not found
Server: Netscape-Enterprise/3.6
Date: Fri, 29 Sep 2000 01:01:50 GMT
Content-type: text/html
Content-length: 207

=== End

now, if you manage to get the debugger to wait just long enough, you can get the
data to come in and so the AsycRead doesn't fail and then we crash in some other

Hmm. From what I see there's a bug somewhere when we didn't reset the url to be 
back a uri, so it should have said GET /, not GET https://aka/ - but it's not a 
problem after all. The problem is that right after we get Connection established

happen as you should not be able to see clear text at all (it should start ssl

Or even the keep-alive with this pref--

I blasted through this thread b/c I've to some other fires, but I think I can 
explain why the "GET HTTPS worked on someone's server". (appoligizes in advance 
if someone covered this)

They are using a Netscape Proxy server that was not configured correctly in a 
strict sense.

There is support for what some mindless docs person named "HTTPS Proxy". It's 
bascially a feature where the Proxy would support SSL dumb clients by accepting 
clear GET's to https URL's and then do the SSL as a client when it forward the 

If you want to support this, create a new pref, and call it a "feature", but 
try explaining the difference between "HTTPS Proxy" and "Security (SSL

If someone needs more detail on this, post here or mail me offline.
tever is testing this problem, and he is using build:
Win NT 101308 & LINUX (both TRUNK).

I've checked the log files of my proxy server (Netscape Proxy Server 3.5x), and 
it it works.

Here are the log entries: - - [13/Oct/2000:12:06:03 -0700] "CONNECT 
HTTP/1.1" 200 0 - 0 0 0 370 73 - - 4 

He's still working on the Mac build.

When your client sends the "HTTPS Proxy" style request, the logs read: - - [11/Oct/2000:17:57:14 -0700] "GET HTTP/1.1" 403 234

I tried it early this A.M. and it still hung - doesn't work here.  I downloaded

Bad news, SSL via proxy is not working correctly in build 2000112704 (Win98). 
Our firewall is a Raptor 1.0. When I try to connect to,

Tom Canova: try turning off TLS support and see if 
works.  I just tried it on Win32 and it worked for me if I turned off TLS, 
crashed N6 if I left TLS turned on.

To turn off TLS support, go to the Tasks menu and choose "Tasks->Privacy and 
Security->Security Manager" to bring up the Personal Security Manager panel.  
Once that appears, choose the "Advanced" tab, then choose the "Options" tab.  
You'll see three choices for SSL settings: SSL 2, SSL 3, and TLS.  Un-check TLS, 
close that window, quit the browser, then re-start it.  Try again, you should be 

I don't know why this is the case, but it is.
If turning off TLS supports fixes the problem, then that means the server
implements TLS incorrectly.  The web site administrator should be notified.

TLS is the lates IETF standard for SSL (TLS == SSL v3.1).  We should avoid
encouraging users to turn it off because most web sites will not fix their
problem unless users make them aware of it.
We shouldn't crash, no mather what the server does. Can somebody please file a
bug? As long as we do crash on random SSL sites, it is very reasonable to turn
it off.

Is that the only problem? Can we close the bug again?
If there is crashing using TLS with "SSL Proxy" but not by itself, then there is 
a problem on ourside.

If there is a problem with using TLS without "SSL Proxy", then this should not 
have been mentioned here :)
Currently I have PSM version 1.3.
Under the advanced tab, it only lists SSL2 and SSL3 (not TLS)

Amazon and Yahoo seem like pretty mainstream sites...
Tom Canova: you're out of luck for the moment.  PSM 1.3 doesn't allow you to
turn off TLS support; there's no UI for it, nor a preference that we were able
to find.

If you're using the Solaris port of Netscape 6 PR 3, you'll get a new version
that will let you turn off the TLS option in about a week (~December 15), when
we switch to PSM 1.4.  The released versions of Netscape 6 already let you do
this preference change.

If you're using Mozilla, then I'd recommend asking how to compile PSM 1.4 and
using it with your Mozilla build; it will at least let you work around the
problem for now.

I don't mean to panic anybody.  It's probably just me.  It should be fairly easy
to verify, though; I'll do what I can at Sun (get others to use the same build
on a different Windows box, and also Linux), and perhaps somebody at Netscape
can verify as well.
I'm using Linux and Squid, and https doesn't work for me either. Requests seem
to time out.

access them.

From the dup bug:
------- Additional Comments From 2001-02-06 16:41 -------

Copying from my report of bug #67815 (which was a dupe of this one, sorry):

Mozilla 2001020508, Linux (Mandrake 7.2, glibc 2.2.1, kernel 2.4.0)

using squid 2.4 (recent cvs snapshot)

The proxy works perfectly for Netscape 4.7x, MSIE and Mozilla 0.7 clients.

Using the aforementioned daily build (2001020508), when trying to access any
secure page (e.g., it takes a long time,
about 1 or 2 minutes, and then says "The operation timed out attempting to
contact https://(address)".

If I configure Mozilla to not use a proxy server for HTTPS sites, it works. The
problem is only when using the proxy.

------- Additional Comments From Tom Mraz 2001-02-06 23:33 -------

I see exactly the same behavior except the proxy is squid 2.3.STABLE4
*** Bug 66904 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Okay, I tried accessing a Sun-internal HTTPS site two ways:

1) Do not use any proxy servers.  Result: works fine.

2) Using proxy servers for both HTTP and SSL.  Result: no worky.

I too see George's problem.  I built the trunk on WINNT4.0 SP4 from source on
last Friday with BUILD_PSM=1 and I can't access my etrade account.
If you configure a proxy for HTTP and no proxy for HTTPS, it also works... the 
problem is just when using HTTPS through a proxy.
The last nightly that worked for me was the 23rd (Build 2001012304). 
Worked for me on win32 commercial as late as 2001-02-05-11, but definitely
broken on win32 comercial now (2001-02-08-08-Mtrunk).

Proxy server logs show: - - [08/Feb/2001:14:00:59 -0800] "CONNECT HTT
P/1.1" 200 0 - 0 0 0 275 73 - - 31

The request is in quotes, and looks good. However the next 4 fields basically
show that after making a successful client-proxy connection, the client never
completes a successful request-response transaction with the destination server.
This could be due to an SSL handshake failure or other problems. I'll keep
digging, but getting info out of SSL is hard to do sometimes :)

Also, since this was working in several releases, would it be too much to ask
that we put the regression in a separate bug?
*** Bug 68100 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
A tcpdump trace seems to show to me that after getting the CONNECT response the
client simply does nothing. Perhaps it doesn't parse the (correct) response right,
or is internally deadlocked.
Is there movement on this bug?  It's a 0.8 bug so I'm trying to make sure that
there's still traction.
darin: can you investigate if the asyncwrite changes you landed have something 
to do with this regression? I can't think up of anything else that may have 
changed from networking side. If you don't find anything I'd let someone 
from security group (javi?) investigate this. 
Assignee: gagan → darin
My AsyncWrite changes went in on 1/23 and broke PSM, but this was fixed on
1/27.  So if this was working on 2/5, then this most likely isn't a regression
caused by my AsyncWrite changes.

bryner made a change on 2/6 that might be related:

bug 67582 - set channel on security info object for ssl-forcehandshake sockets.
who should own this?
I doubt it's my checkin, this just sets an additional attribute on the security
info object.

Can anyone confirm whether nsSocketTransport::doConnection is calling
ProxyStepUp() on the socket?
darin, gagan, this seems to have stalled.  can one of youhelp get it moving again.
Can someone point me to an SSL proxy for testing?
benc has an ssl proxy server running for testing purposes  443

Reliably, you can only test on a system which is not connected to the Inet other
than through the proxy. Netscape *should* have such systems.

We are successfully making the CONNECT with the SSL proxy.  It returns a 200
success code.  At this point, we switch into SSL mode (via ProxyStepUp).
After doing so, we enter PR_Poll waiting for socket i/o.  For some reason,
PR_Poll never wakes up the socket.

I switched back to necko (1/22/2001) and found that everything worked just
fine, which means that this is definitely a bug in necko and not in PSM.

I'm trying to compare the behavior of the two necko's in order to hopefully
locate the bug.
I have a fix for this.
Beware, the patch I just submitted fixes this bug but breaks FTP (see bug
65220).  The correct fix requires a true bidi socket transport, which dougt
has on his branch.
re: ben's comments above

I'm not clear on the exact configuration you are referring to. Do you mean we 
should have a system that is on a proxy-firewalled subnet? I'm not sure how that 
helps in this situation. 

If you want to make sure that you client is not connecting directly, there are 
methods of verifying the correct behavior without the mentioned configuration...

Please note: my patch is a workaround fix.  This bug should not be considered
resolved once this patch lands.  For some reason, polling on a SSL socket is
broken.  PR_Poll sometimes doesn't wakeup.  This is especially true after
ProxyStepUp is called.  PR_Poll never wakes up if it is entered right after
calling ProxyStepUp.  My patch ensures that PR_Write/PR_Read get called first
before entering PR_Poll, and this seems to do the trick (at least for

However, my patch only seems to fix the problem for some HTTPS sites.

In particular, I am still unable to login to and
using an SSL proxy.  I can do this in moz 0.7, but not with my trunk build.
I even tried running a trunk build with necko from moz 0.7, and that didn't
work.  Which, confirms for me that this is not a necko bug.  In these examples,
the last thing necko does is successfully write some data to the socket and
then enter PR_Poll.  PR_Poll times out after a while and we get PR_POLL_HUP
on the socket.

Any ideas?  Who should own this?

jgmyers says this might be caused by bug 66706.  trying work around suggested there.
The work-around may have to be applied in PSM since necko wouldn't be calling

If that's the case, insert the work around at the following line of PSM:

Adding to CC
I nominate this bug report for the following awards:

1. Most reopened.  (6 times)
2. highest number of distinctly separate problems reported in a 
   single bug report (only superficially similar).
3. highest number of "additional comments".
4. Most attachments
5. Most speculation about how it's supposed to work
6. Most speculation about why it's not working.
7. Most speculation on how to fix it.

Both of the two Necko/PSM logs show that an SSL connection
was completed, and the application data written on the 
socket, so bug 66706 is irrelevant.

A proxy would not be expected to log the (possibly encrypted) 
traffic on the socket after the CONNECT command succeeded,
though it might log the amount of such data.

What's really needed here is the output of a packet trace
or possibly the output of the ssltap program, although 
that might cough on the CONNECT command.
that's odd, my sr comments from this morning didn't take. I must not have been
logged into bugzilla and didn't pay attention after the submit. Sorry about that.

the socket work around looks okay to me (just looked at the revised one with
Brendan's comments). Although I'm confused by Javi's comments. He says the patch
needs to be moved into psm. does that mean we aren't working around it in all
cases or something? 

I guess I'm a bit confused as to were we stand. Are we happy that this work
around to the socket transport makes things happy (at least for mozilla .8)?
With a real fix coming later? Or do we need to change some bits in psm?
Javi's point was that the "woraround" suggested by John Myers 
applies to SSL sockets (that is, NSPR sockets that have had SSL 
attached to them, such as is done inside PSM 1.x, and is not done
in the browser process). So, the workaround would have no effect
in the browser, as Darian confirmed.  

That "workaround" is also not needed in PSM.  John's 
"workaround" is intended to get the handshake started in cases 
where it has not started.  But both PSM trace logs clearly 
showed that the SSL handshake completed. 
amazing that we lived this long without adding the flags for readwrite case. 
Great find darin! r=gagan but I'd still like to make sure that there were no 
reasons for not doing this earliar. rpotts can you sr this?
r=bryner on final patch
Comment on the last patch.  Aren't we setting the mSocketFlag in the 
eSocketState_Connected state in Process()?  Why do we have to re-OR the flags 
back in?  Are we totally skipping this state?
Wow -- pretty fundamental.  So I guess the async i/o control flow never goes
through the Connected state in nsSocketTransport::Process?  Is that right?

Looks like mscott sr'd most of it.  I just dug through lxr to understand the
async read/write control flow better, and also to grok how PUT/POST data goes
through a second AsyncWrite.  So I can stamp a rubbery,
and plead with anyone who is around and can help to get this into

Many thanks to darin, and to everyone who helped to figure this out.  Please
watch the milestone schedule, don't give us a last minute thrill ride next time,
ok?  We'll try to keep mozilla #qa on top of proxied SSL regressions, too.  The

HTTPS-through-proxy. Wasn't it supposed to wait for a true fix? :(

Well, I have squid as a transparent proxy, and SSL over it with 0.8 seems to
work quite fine, with me.

I do not have conditions to reproduce the situation in a more closed
situation... but since my isp is using transparent proxy, I don't have problems.

This again adds to the idea that mozilla is speaking wrongly to the wrong ports.
I'm getting this with squid-2.3, Build-ID 2001021912:

82620410.587  29951 TCP_MISS/000 39 CONNECT
 - DIRECT/ -

and it just sits there.

here's the tcpdump:

[root@uw7moz /root]# tcpdump -i eth0  -v host
Kernel filter, protocol ALL, datagram packet socket
tcpdump: listening on eth0
23:14:57.553107 < > uw7moz.squid: S 649072503:649072503(0) w

at this point it stopps.

My patch was not applied to the trunk (it was a hack for mozilla 0.8)  This bug
is correctly fixed on dougt's DOUGT_CHANNEL_CHANGES_02112001_BRANCH which will
be merging on the trunk very soon.
Updating target milestone to 0.9
Target Milestone: --- → mozilla0.9
I applied the patch(attchment 25317). Before applying the patch, I can't even
get into the secure site. After applied the patch, the browser can get into the
secure website, however, it just hangs during loading the page. 
This is what I observed with the latest code from trunk. 
Dougt's branch landed.  Marking FIXED.

*** Bug 69894 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Verified with the 2/23 Win32 trunk, Mac mozilla, and Linux trunk builds.
*** Bug 69481 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
For the record, and as a warning: In 0.8 Linux, SSL over proxy caused
mozilla-bin to grab memory without bound at a rapid rate. I had to kill it at
223MB, or it would have crashed my machine.
I have also seen exactly this behaviour in Moz 0.8 on NT4.
(Grabbing memory without bound at a rapid rate after going to SSL site though
a proxy, had to kill from Taskmanager.)

Is there already a new bug on this?
This is fixed in current daily builds. However, most people will keep using 0.8
until there's a new "official" release, so maybe a 0.8.1 or something, with this
fixed, would be a good idea...
