Angry PCLOS - HTTP error 405 in Firefox 2.0.0.11


Have searched every forum and web-wide for a hit (8 hours) on this issue and I've found none. Please help. My signature gives my specs. I have been running PCLOS for 2.5 months. I'm very new, so a technical answer to this question has to be detailed so I can numbly, step-by-step fix it. Thanks for any help.

Up to Firefox 2.0.0.9, I had no problem accessing ANY website at all. Then through SPM, I was updated to 2.0.0.11, and 2 things started happening:

1. Firefox started throwing an "HTTP Error 405 - The HTTP verb used to access this page is
not allowed. Internet Information Services (IIS)."
"The page cannot be displayed. The page you are looking for cannot be displayed because an invalid method (HTTP verb) was used to attempt access."

I was trying to access my personal account @ Comcast to pay my bill. (Never had this problem before.)


2. When I tried to access my account @ BofA, I would have to enter my ID (never before, as the account ID was saved). When I entered it, the site continued on, and almost immediately, Firefox just disappeared. Shutdown completely.

There are also other abnormalities, i.e. irregular page layouts, shutting down on nonsecure sites as well.

I'm editing to let you know, I have absolutely no problem with Konqueror - works on every site - I just don't like using it as my primary browser.

I'm confused and frustrated. Also a newbie. I'd like to know if anyone else has experienced any thing like this, and if possibly a fix might be on the horizon.

Happy Holidays to everyone and thank you.

HTTP error 405 in Firefox 2.0.011

I haven't had the error you report but I have noticed the irregular web pages a few times. I am using Mandriva 2008 upon which PCLinuxOS is based and FF 2.0.0.11. I never had this problem with the earlier versions of FF. I have also noticed that the irregular web pages only appear when links are used. Going directly to that web page results in a normal presentation.

Sorry I don't know the answer to the problem but at least you know you are not completely alone.

Hmm, I'll have to be careful when I see Firefox 2.0.0.11 on the Fedora repositories.

Obviously something is borked in the version of Firefox you're using. I would suggest reporting the bugs to your distribution's packagers and/or the Mozilla project. I was able to find mention of similar problems for a few other's. Doesn't seem to be too widespread of a problem yet and its only been a little over a month since 2.0.0.11 was released, so I'm not surprised you haven't found much help. I found no clear reason for the problems yet. Some claim they fixed it by removing certain addons they were using, others think they've traced it to underlying libraries, and so on. I would downgrade to a previous version and wait for 2.0.0.12 or better before upgrading. However, some have claimed that it was still broken even after a downgrade, but there were few such claims that I could see.

If you want to look at some of my findings check out this Google search:

Edit: Sorry, a little tired and my thoughts got stuck on the one crash you mentioned

A little more searching and in general there is a wide range of problems occurring in 2.0.0.11. My advice still stands, downgrade and wait for a later release.

Cool Thank you... 1 more question

Thanks folks.

I did all kinds of crap, re-installed 2.0.0.11, uninstalled all the add-ons I could (you know, the ones that are just fun or handy), but if the version is buggie, it's buggie!

Can you help me on the downgrade thing?

SPM doesn't have an option (I can find) that allows you to downgrade. Can someone help me do it?

I can uninstall and reinstall the same buggie version, but obviously that doesn't do any good. I've never had to downgrade an App before.

Thanks in advance.
