Pale Moon refuses to visit some web sites.


I have been trying Puppy Tahr 6.0.2 (I usually run Linux Mint).

I like the Pale Moon web-browser, but it has refused to visit at least three of my regular bookmarks (Duckduckgo and Wikipedia among others). If I try to get to the site via another link (Google, for instance)I get the same message.

It shows this error message:

Secure Connection Failed
An error occurred during a connection to "whichever site"
The OCSP response is not yet valid (contains a date in the future).
(Error code: sec_error_ocsp_future_response) (and so on, and so on)

Is this a problem with Tahr, or Pale Moon, or what?
I am using a Toshiba Satellite with 1.2 G of RAM; it has Linux Mint 17.2 installed, and has always putted along without problems, so I don't think this is a hardware issue (although I have been wrong before).

Not a problem with palemoon.

Duckduckgo is an option in the search bar and displays; en.wikipedia.org resolves and displays. Sounds like you're missing a lib, or protocol. Are you on paranoid security settings?

I sounds silly but have you checked the date and time on your PC?
Also is the clock battery failing.
It sounds as if your PC is out of time sync with the world.

I tried again, and found a couple more of my bookmarks that it is unwilling to visit: one, the Pale Moon home page (!) and the other the Hotmail site. I then rebooted with Puppy Wary 5.5 (Seamonkey) and then again with Puppy Slacko 6.3.0 (Firefox). Both had had the same bookmarks installed, and both were willing to visit any bookmark.

I am running all three from a CD, and I allowed all three to install a file, to facilitate a quicker start-up, save changes, etc.

The only changes I have made, aside installing the bookmarks, was to remove a few desktop icons that were, for me, clutter.

So, no security settings, paranoid or otherwise.

The date and time are correct (clever idea by the way—the sort of thing I might never notice).

I haven't had much time to put into this, but I already have the impression that Wary 5.5 is the slowest to boot up and seems to demand a lot of memory while running.

Is there a later version of Puppy running Pale Moon? Or simply a later version (that would be happy with a laptop of this vintage that I could install Pale Moon as the default browser? Whether the problem recurred or not, it would be more information.

I went back to Puppy Slacko 6.3, installed the Pale Moon Puplet, and it seems to open any web site perfectly happily. I am not going to mark this thread as solved for a day or two, in case some other oddity pops up, but most likely the original problem is some anomaly that could be cured by re-installation or whatever.

Palemoon is firefox. Most difficulties involve plugins. Glad you're sorted by upgrading

I've gotten the same error in Slacko5.5,5.7 & Slacko64-64bit 6.0 alpha. When I use the first run dialog, I set my timezone as GMT-5. Palemoon is unpacked to /mnt/home. The first time I try to run Palemoon I get the error. I have found to get Palemoon to function I have to Menu > Desktop > Psync Time > North America,then Palemoon works. I then go back and set my time as it's off by 10 hours.

I believe trevoratxtal was right in his first response, but that I didn't understand it until jeff757 said something similar.

The first occasion that I wondered about the date and time on the laptop,I simply looked at the time shown on the desktop, andwhichever variety of puppy I ranit was always correct. However when I returned and compared the timezone shown in Menu>Psync it was correct in Wary and Slacko, but incorrect in Tahr. Live and learnI had never even wondered if this was possible.

Once I corrected the time zone, Pale Moon opened any site quite happily.

Many thanks.

Just to let you know, I am running Tahr 6.0.1 and have the same problem. I have tried installing Firefox instead but it seems to "disappear" if I try to run it.
