SSL with FF 2.0 on IIS 5.0 servers

Hi,

I've discovered an issue with FF 2.0 when connecting to a website hosted on 
a windows 2000 server running IIS.  The FF browser will not load the 
webpage.  It throws this error:

The connection was interrupted
The connection to www.xxx.org was interrupted while the page was loading.
    *   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in 
a few
          moments.
    *   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
          connection.
    *   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, 
make sure
          that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

The same site will load fine on a windows 2k3 server running IIS 6.

My question, does anyone know if anything can be done to fix this issue on 
the windows 2000 servers running iis 5, or is moving the sites to win2k3 iis 
6 the only option.

Thanks,

-Chris

Default access to the SSL2 protocols was dropped from FF2 for security 
reasons due to the very weak 40bit encryption.  You can manually 
activate SSL2 by editing the prefs for a profile by use of  
about:config.  Use the filter bar to find SSL2 and toggle entries with 
the right click on a highlighted entry.

Suggest that you use two profiles, one with the SSl2 and one without.  
This way you can manage your security risk by running with weak security 
only when needed.

Firefox is turning into a piece of crap. First, there is only 1 profile, the default profile. Second, after the first 2.0.0.6 update wiped out the profile settings (again), the automatic check for updates was turned off. This morning the customized profile settings went MIA again, Firefox decided it was version 2.0.0.5 (per the help, about firefox) and automatically downloaded 2.0.0.6; even though 2.0.0.6 had already been installed on July 31.

FF Update to 2.0.0.4, 2.0.0.5
I finally got the courage ( as I am not of the computer generation) to update FF 1.5.0.12 to 2.0.0.4, then to 2.0.0.5 at the invitation almost insistence of Mozilla every time I use Firefox. Only 3 extensions not possible to update at this point, only really useful extension is Auto Fill, wish the author might update for 2.0.0.5. The update was flawless, Firefox continues to operate as before with, as I notice while typing this message, an automatic spell checker, very useful. Firefox is the best, continues to get better.

Problems with new FireFox 2.0.0.5 and 0.8.0.2 XForms extension
Hi all, We are running the 0.8.0.2 extension and are having problems with the new FireFox 2.0.0.5 that just came out. It looks like instance documents are not loading on the Windows platform. Is anyone else having problems with this? Thanks - Dan It won't work. We added support for current() which means changes to XPath which means that any interaction in xforms that requires xpath will fail (almost all of them if you consider binding, etc). --Aaron Dan McCreary wrote: > Hi all, > > We are running the 0.8.0.2 extension and are having problems with th...
