I have just tried this out in my machine. I connections settings for firefox are the following: 1. A manual proxy which points to proxy server in my intranet. 2. A automatic proxy URL which I use along with my VPN. Most of the time I am in VPN and hence I am not able to access the intranet sites. The intranet sites can be accessed by the http protocol in the intranet, but while in VPN I need to use the https protocol. The problem here is that say if I access a https site using firefox, the browser gets hung. While the same url works fine in IE. I doubt if this is in a way related to the certificate provided by the site. I have faced a similiar problem with some other sites which run on https. Also another point to be highlighted here is that, say if I am able to access a https site (not necessarily an intranet site, just an internet site which is placed only in the https) in VPN. No say I disconnect from my VPN and switch to the local proxy server, and try to connect to the same https internet site, the browsers gets hung. Again here I doubt this to be a certificate issue. I may not be able to share any screenshot or URL with the firefox team as the URL's, VPN connections etc are property of a company where I work. So I would prefer not to share them. Rather if any help is needed from my end I would be glad to offer to the most possible extent. Let me know if you guys need something from me. Let me know if this is not a bug too. May be I am wrong on this. :) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.

You also use the same automatic proxy URL in IE then?
I face the same problem. When a https website (secured) opens, firefox hangs for a couple of seconds. Minimized firefox does not comes up, normal firefox does not respond to tab switch actions, etc., I tried reproducing it in firefox 9 and also in Aurora 11.0a2 I am also behind a proxy server, which is surprisingly a coincidence to this bug. IE works fine in my case also. I have set the same proxy server on both browsers.
