Fedora Chokes on Firefox


We use Fedora in my Linux classes at school, so I was equally pissed off of when I found out that the stock firefox installation doesn’t support ssl…in other words you can’t get to secure pages. Since the entire schooli ntranet is on a secure connection it pretty much sucks when you can’t access your email and assignments. I was the only person in the class who was able to fix this and be able to finish my shit during class instead of doing it for homework.

The error you get when accessing secure pages in Firefox on Fedora is:

Unexpected response from server
Firefox doesn’t know how to communicate with the server.

You can fix this in three commands:

yum update nss (or yum install nss, if it’s not installed)
yum remove firefox
yum install firefox
