-  Try mozilla
https://www.sdm.ch/cki/search.asp?lang=en&em=p.verhoeff@hetnet.nl&ret=caen%2Emyswitzerland.com%2Fen%2F&st2000pid=&st2000sid=1010204092148195186045006^L

- after 20s, security warning appears (psm startup?). Although I uncheck the
box, it appears every time anyways ;) -> Minor bug
- loading the page is very slow. Compare with Netscape 4.7
- Document never loads fully. Notice the missing graphics on the side of the
radio buttons "Hotel category" (compare with Netscape) -> Minor, not nice, though
- While loading, the sign for encryped transfer (the lock in the right corner)
is NOT yellow, indicating insecure transfer -> Minor
- Play around with the lists and buttons. Notice the page will not be redraw
correctly. Every now and then the scroll bar on the right will disappear.
Sometimes mozilla even crashs (try also paste in the fields with middle mouse
button for that) (Segv (Sorry, I have no debug build :( ))

- Look at this:
rene@java:/usr/src/mozilla.run/bin > ps -Af  | grep mozilla
rene      3341   368  0 23:48 pts/3    00:00:00 sh
/usr/src/mozilla.run/bin/run-mozilla.sh ./mozilla-bin
https://www.sdm.ch/cki/search.asp?lang=en
rene      3351  3341 19 23:48 pts/3    00:00:27 ./mozilla-bin
https://www.sdm.ch/cki/search.asp?lang=en
rene      3367  3351  0 23:48 pts/3    00:00:00 ./mozilla-bin
https://www.sdm.ch/cki/search.asp?lang=en
rene      3368  3367  0 23:48 pts/3    00:00:00 ./mozilla-bin
https://www.sdm.ch/cki/search.asp?lang=en
rene      3402  3367  0 23:49 pts/3    00:00:00 ./mozilla-bin
https://www.sdm.ch/cki/search.asp?lang=en
rene      3464  3367  0 23:49 pts/3    00:00:00 ./mozilla-bin
https://www.sdm.ch/cki/search.asp?lang=en

- Notice the one with PPID=1. Does psm have to fork that many times anyways?
rene@java:/usr/src/mozilla.run/bin > ps -Af  | grep psm
rene      3387     1  1 23:49 pts/3    00:00:01 ./psm
rene      3393  3387  0 23:49 pts/3    00:00:00 ./psm
rene      3394  3393  0 23:49 pts/3    00:00:00 ./psm
rene      3396  3393  0 23:49 pts/3    00:00:00 ./psm
rene      3399  3393  0 23:49 pts/3    00:00:00 ./psm
rene      3400  3393  0 23:49 pts/3    00:00:00 ./psm
rene      3401  3393  0 23:49 pts/3    00:00:00 ./psm
rene      3403  3393  0 23:49 pts/3    00:00:00 ./psm
rene      3418  3393  0 23:49 pts/3    00:00:00 ./psm
rene      3613   368  2 23:51 pts/3    00:00:00 grep psm


- Something to end with: try http://www.fhsfg.com/. In Netscape appears a small
dialog, complaining about unknown host. Mozilla views the source of the page
instead. Cool, eh?

- I updated from CVS on Feb 3th, using HEAD in both mozilla and mozilla/security

Sounds like a dup of bug 65703.
The page seems to work just fine for me, linux build 2001-01-30-10.

The lock icon issue is by design -- until the page is fully loaded there is no
way to know whether it is actually secure (one could have some interesting
javascript redirects, insecure iframe/image urls, etc).

1) after 20s, security warning appears (psm startup?). Although I uncheck the
box, it appears every time anyways ;).

Did you have the same experience then?


2) Document never loads fully. Notice the missing graphics on the side of the
radio buttons "Hotel category"

Might there be a relation with bug #68151 ?


3) Host resolution not successfull, code shown instead of warning dialogue. Is
this dependant on the DNS reply whether the error is rendered as HTML or not?

4) I don't think bug #65703 addresses the problem I mentioned as I would like to
point out again PPID=1 for one of the psm processes. For me it seems that the
parent process of PID 3387 was terminated BEFORE its children have, that is why
it got inherited to the init process :)


BTW: My build was with -O2, gcc 2.92.2 on SuseLinux 6.2, Kernel 2.2.10

1.)"Although I uncheck the box [of the security warning], it appears every time 
anyways"
This is no longer reproducible, but it may have been a bug at one time.
2.) "loading the page is very slow" - known bugs, such as bug 67898, bug 50843.
3.) "Document never loads fully" - The page loads fine for me.
4.) "While loading, the sign for encryped transfer (the lock in the right 
corner)
is NOT yellow, indicating insecure transfer" - As Boris stated:
"The lock icon issue is by design -- until the page is fully loaded there is no
way to know whether it is actually secure (one could have some interesting
javascript redirects, insecure iframe/image urls, etc)."
5.) "Play around with the lists and buttons. Notice the page will not be redraw
correctly. Every now and then the scroll bar on the right will disappear.
Sometimes mozilla even crashes" - I'm just not seeing this.
Marking duplicate of bug 67898. If you still see the problems mentioned above 
with a newer release, (except the performance issue), please open new bugs with 
only one issue each. Thanks.

Resolution: --- → DUPLICATE
Absolutely nothing in the description of this bug suggests the 
problem is caused by Nagle delays (which introduce delays on 
the order of a fraction of a second into TCP traffic).  

So I do not believe this bug is a duplicate of 67898.
Perhaps you had another bug in mind?

I believe nelsonb if he says this is not a dupe of bug 67898.
Since I haven't found an open bug on SSL being slow on other than Win98,95, 
which is bug 50843 I am reopening the bug based on the original summary.

"Document never loads fully" might be caused by bug 55714.
