I don't think this is a crypto issue.  Bug 27295 prevented basic http auth from
working on M14.  This has since been fixed.  You could try a new build (although
I'm not sure how well SSL works in nightly builds).  

You could also try to go to a non-secure authenticated site, e.g., go to
http://mozilla.diaryland.com/ and log in as "test" with password "mozilla".  If
that also doesn't work, it's just that old bug.

garyl@akos.net wirties in email: I have tried it on a non-secure authenticated
site. It works fine. it also works fine on a regular secure site  just not on a
secure authenticated site.

I have no way of reproducing this.  Change to NEW, cc gagan.

if you need someplace to test it I set up a url for it.

https://netverifier.com/testdir/
username= testdir
password = tester1

Marking fixed. I can log into etrade and schwab. I cannot log into the URL 
below even with Nav 4.7, so I am not using this as a testcase.
