Browser no longer able to access any sites after loging into projectplace.com and navigating to one of the sites inside. The secure connection breaks, and when you go to any site, even if it has nothing to do with project place (bugzilla, yahoo...) netscape says that it cannot connect to that site. This works on Linux Redhat 2001-07-02-06-trunk build but not on 2001-07-02-04-windows 98 Steps to reproduce 1) goto URL 2) put in "firstname.lastname@example.org" as username, "bugzilla" as password 3) Once inside click on "Bugzilla Test" project, and try to go to "Document Archive" Expected Results: List of uploaded files Actual Results: Secure connection is broken (notice the lock ikon in the bottom right corner is either red, or unlocked) and you are no longer able to go to any site on the web. Note: this came out of bug 88814, most likely not related
->PSM. If it involves HTTPS, assign it to the PSM product, not Security:General.
-> ddrinan. David. Can you try to replicate on windows. I verified that it works for Linux buildid 2001070204.
Worksforme on WinTN except for being able to view the List of uploaded files, probably because the page is using style sheets.
This also works for me on windows 2000. Looks like this is win 98 only.
junruh: do you have a win98 machine to try this on?
Confirming the reporter's findings on Win98. WinNT is OK.
I think I know what the problem might be here: the nsNSSSocketInfo object that is created for each SSL connection maintains a refenence to the necko nsHttpConnection object. Since nsNSSSocketInfo is cached for lock icon/page info purposes, the nsHttpConnection object is not being freed and as a result the SSL socket is not being closed. On win98 this could be very bad over time since socket resources are limited. I need to talk to the necko people to figure out how to fix this.
I have discussed with dougt a possible solution. A patch to follow soon.
This looks good to me. r/sr=dougt
Doug, who else should review this before I check it into the trunk?
Fix checked into trunk.
Fix checked into branch.
*** Bug 90625 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I tested this out on a win98 machine. Seems to be working fine now.
Thanks for fixing this as this is the only reason I'm using IE at the moment. Sorry about the duplicate bug 90625. I did a search for PSM and secure and got nothing so I assumed it had not been logged yet. Win98 runs out of TCP connections at about 80 connections.
I just found out at http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q158/4/74.ASP that it is possible to increase the number of conncurrent connections via TCP with the following entry in the win98 registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\MSTCP\MaxConnections (string type). Default is 100 Although this is not the best way to solve problems that are bugs, but it would have been a temporary fix but would eventually cause win98 to run out of memory.
Verified on 7/15 win98 branch.
