Exclamation FC5: Problem with accessing secure connection websites on Firefiox...


I've been using Fedora Core 5 since its release date and it hasn't really given me any trouble till now. Yesterday though, I ran my software updater, and among the software updated, my Firefox web browser was updated to version 1.5.0.7

After that though, I've been unable to access any website using a secure connection through Firefox. I can browse any site on an unsecure connection, but I can't view ones using a secure connection, like logging in to Yahoo! Mail, or orkut etc. It gives this error whenver I try to access those:

"Unexpected response from server

Firefox doesn't know how to communicate with the server.

* Check to make sure your system has the Personal Security Manager
installed.
* This might be due to a non-standard configuration on the server."

I disabled and then enabled TLS and SSL from the Security option in FF. Didn't work. Uninstalled, and then reinstalled FF with pirut. Didn't work, still gives same error. I hadn't changed my SELinux policy, yet I disabled it and then tried to access those sites. Still didn't work!

So has anyone ELSE faced an issue with FF 1.5.0.7 on FC5? Right now, I'm accessing those sites using Epiphany (as a workaround) and it works fine with Epiphany. But I love my FF and I just don't want to give it up.

Any suggestions, anyone, to rectify this problem?

Hey, I saw another similar post related to my sort of problem here:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=481297

I tried what was written there, i.e., creating a new user profile. I then tried working under the new user profile. Still didn't work out. Can't access the sites still...

Thanks! Well, I can't stay without browsing, so I just installed Freespire 1.0

Thanks though for telling. Problem was pretty much the same. I guess it'd have worked out.
