According to the FAQ on Midori's website this problem occurs regularly. The suggested way to solve this is to start Midori with this command:
Quote:
export WEBKIT_IGNORE_SSL_ERRORS="1" midori
I think it's a webkit related problem.

thanks for the tip. unfortunately it didn't help. Midori won't even start from the terminal with that command.

I had the same problem with jumanji web browser. You need to install "glib-networking".

I had to recompile libsoup with glib-networking to get it working.

Thank you. I used src2pkg to install glib-networking and recompiled libsoup and it now works fine.
BTW I updated libsoup to 2.34.1 and midori to 3.6 which works great too.
