Description

17 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.3) Gecko/20010801
BuildID:    2001080110

On my system any https-webpage is not visible. Mozilla shows "document done",
but nothing happens. I am using a proxy, but this can't be the problem since
other browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer) does handle it correctly.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Simply call a secure-http webpage.
2.
3.

Actual Results:  Nothing happenes. Webpage is not shown (seems to be not even
downloaded).

Expected Results:  Render the secure-http webpage. (Download security-certificate?)

Did you install PSM?
Updating URL to remove http://https://
PSM -> You should get a dialog with a certificate warning

Reporter: 
Have you installed mozilla in a fresh directory ? (not over m0.9.2)
Can you try it with a new profile ? 
(run "mozilla -profilemanager" and create a secound test profile)

wfm with win2k build 20010805..

Yes, I did have Mozilla 0.9.2 before. But I've removed it completely via
uninstaller. Furthermore I've removed all registry keys with the words "mozilla"
or "netscape" in it and my profile folder completely. The computer should have
been "mozilla-clean".
Now I also tried to create a brand new blank profile, but it has the same
effect. I type in any secure-http address and nothing happenes (my lan
connection only shows a traffic of 2 incoming and 2 outgoing packages).
Now I tried it with a direct internet connection an a connections using our
network proxies - that does'nt seem to matter. Any further hints?

What does "wfm with win2k build 20010805." mean?Ps.: Anyway I am using Mozilla
since a long time for now and it's pretty good work though!
wfm with win2k build 20010805.. means :
This is worksforme for me with build 20010805.. (.. because I'm using a CVS 
build) on windows 2000

Alright - I did not install PSM (now I know that it means Personal Security 
Manager) since I thought I wouldn't need it for simple browsing. I was wrong. 
After installing PSM I got all the security certificate messages and all my 
https - websites work perfectly. A big sorry for that.
Anyway: Maybe this should be written somewhere? I didn't know that so far. 
Knowing from Netscape I normally install navigator and mail/news only.
Again sorry for that... next time I will make a full install before guessing a 
bug.
Thanks !
marking worksforme (I didn't know that can can unselect PSM from installing 
since I'm not using the installer)

BTW: "Again sorry for that..." no problem (!!) unless you search bugzilla for 
known bugs !
