Description

17 years ago
To reproduce:

1. Load the above URL in Mozilla
2. Notice that nothing happens at all.

Expected:

1. Redirect (HTTP 301) to
https://comhome.comdirect.de/de/comhome/login/index_login.html
2. Due to some Javascript code in that page, redirect to
https://comhome.comdirect.de/de/comhome/login/fs_login.jsp
   (or comhome2 or comhome3).

    Loading one of the above URLs directly yields to nothing at all, either,
except that the locker icon at the bottom right of the window changes from
blue and open to orange and broken. Clicking on that icon shows no info.

I'm using Mozilla 2000102220 with the current PSM on WinNT.

comhome.comdirect.de is a TLS intolerant server that violates the SSL3/TLS 
"version roll back" rule. The workaround for Netscape 6 is to open the Security 
Manager, click on Advanced, Options, and disable TLS.

    I'm using Mozilla (build 2000102220 as I said above), not Netscape 6.  Is
PSM only working with Netscape 6?

    With Security Manager, do you mean that thing I get when I click on the
locker icon at the bottom right?  I can't change anything there any more,
because it is empty now, except for the four tabs and the header.  This is
strange, because it used to show something, e.g. the type of encryption
in use, and I didn't change anything.  Okay, that's another bug and I'll file
that seperately.

    I'll try to send an email to comdirect.de, perhaps they can make their
server TLS compliant.  But still, no response from Mozilla at all is a bit too
less in this case, IMHO.  It should at least pop up some alert window telling
me what you told me, shouldn't it?  Perhaps the Security Manager could also
tell me what's going wrong.

So reopening and changing the summary accordingly.

Dupe of bug 33772 - No warning when connection is not possible. 
and dupe of bug 52549 - Second PSM window has only the top tabs
