Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Make sure OCSP validation is on using the certificate provided OCSP server 2. Make sure "When an OCSP server connection fails, treat the certificate as invalid" is UNchecked 3. Configure your local firewall to DROP (not reject) all TCP traffic on port 80 to the OCSP server (e.g. ocsp.godaddy.com) 4. Connect to https://www.godaddy.com Actual Results: After a timeout firefox shows the error: The connection was interrupted Expected Results: Website is loaded without error or message. When the requests to the OCSP server are rejected rather than dropped the results are as expected.
If it's an EV-certificate, bug 490883 might help (downgrade to no EV-certificate). Otherwise, it's a dupe of bug 334658.
first one should be bug 508633
