Mozilla and SSL on Debian


Hello everyone, this is my first post here. Earlier this week I successfully installed Debian woody on my computer and everything works fine (as far as I can tell) except that when I am using mozilla it doesn't seem to want to use SSL. Is there some switch I need to flick to get this to work or something that needs to be installed (a ssl package maybe)? I'm really sorry if this problem seems a little bit silly to the rest of you but I am just learning at the moment, being but a simple refugee from Windowsland.

Check mozilla edit -> Preferences ->Privacy & Security ->SSL. If they are checked then did you install ssh during install?

The cause may be that in debian the SSL package is separate to the rest of mozilla. In fact they're all separate. The packages are:

"mozilla-browser": Just the browser.
"mozilla-mailnews": The email/news client.
"mozilla-psm": The mozilla personal security manager. <--- This is probably missing.

To install it try an apt-get install mozilla-psm.

TigerOC - The boxes are all checked. I am pretty sure ssh was installed, when I type 'ssh' at the shell prompt it brings up help for ssh so I am pretty confident it is there.

adz - I tried doing the apt-get but it told me that it already had the latest mozilla-psm.

Thanks for the quick replies guys!

What are you trying to do with mozilla? Are you going to a secure site and it wont let you in?

I am so embarassed.

As it turns out the sites I was expecting to have ssl on them didn't in actual fact have ssl and ssl in mozilla works perfectly

I am really sorry for wasting everyone's time, I will do much better research before my next query.
