User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050920 Firefox/1.0.7 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050920 Firefox/1.0.7 I'm on a team that looks after the website at www.adelaide.edu.au. We have several virtual hosts on our server, such as commerce.adelaide.edu.au. Our secure certificate is a wildcard one, for *.adelaide.edu.au, so it *should* cover subdomains such as www or commerce or anything really. However, when I try to view any page on one of the virtual host subdomains in firefox (on linux) over https, it gets an Access Denied error. I've tried it in IE (on windows and a Mac), Epiphany (on linux) and Firefox (on a Mac) and it worked fine. So the common themes for it not working seem to be: 1. firefox 2. linux 3. virtual host subdomain 4. https (it does redirect to port 448 when going to https, so that may actually be the issue) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. go to https://commerce.adelaide.edu.au/ in linux firefox 2. 3. Actual Results: ERROR The requested URL could not be retrieved While trying to retrieve the URL: www.commerce.adelaide.edu.au:448 The following error was encountered: * Access Denied. Access control configuration prevents your request from being allowed at this time. Please contact your service provider if you feel this is incorrect. Expected Results: display the page

This will be a problem with your proxy server / firewall most likely. Most are only set to allow connections to secure servers on port 443 as standard.
-> WFM If you can reproduce this problem with a current build (and it is not caused by the firewall/proxy settings), please reopen.
