Description

11 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061010 Firefox/2.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061010 Firefox/2.0

My company manages a few hundred Colubris access controllers. These managed devices have a Linux-based OS that uses the GoAhead web server for an interface (http://www.goahead.com/products/web_server.htm)

Since Firefox 2 came out, I'm frequently (about 70% of the time) given errors saying the SSL connection has been interrupted.  This occurs on both Mac and Windows versions.

I've narrowed it down some, and it seems to only occur when the server sends a 302 Redirect in response to a form being POSTed.  This error did not (and does not) occur in Firefox 1.5.

The message in the controller syslog says "Closing connection from 2364 as no data was received in last 5 seconds."

Live HTTP headers says this:

packet trace of the error

Not sure how much use this will be, but hopefully someone will see something in it.  You can see the 5 second pause in the trace file as well.

Is this still a problem with recent Firefox builds ?
