First of all, I never experienced problems using secured pages, except for (this) one site.
To picture it in short, I use a login page, get directed to an other login page, I DO get logged in, and as I'm logged in, an other page (main secured page) is normally loaded.
Problem: using Firefox and Opera in Linux gives the following errors:
Firefox: (free translation) "Can't find the server on" followed by a string containing some numbers and letters, ends on a dash (hyphen?) a dot, followed by the domain name from the site.
Opera: "You tried to access the address " followed by an url starting with "https://" and containing a different address then firefox mentions.
I use Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Zenwalk and Slax, on different computers, and get the
same error on all of them :(
An other maybe interesting fact is that in the past I didn't have any problems at all logging in, but like half a year ago this error started, after trying a few times I could get logged in.
This could be (probably is) because the string mentioned above was changing every login, and is not changing anymore now...
To me it seems there are 2 possible sources for the error.
- Firefox and Opera can't handle certain character(combo's) in url's (the changing string part in the url)
- The folks running the website have some bugs in there scripts/server
In the end I can leave out the possible "network-error" or "firewall blocking" thing because I tried without firewall, and all other secured pages just work.
So my question (if you are still reading (I do hope so)) is:
Does anybody else have this problem?
Tips on solving this one? (I can't directly get to talk to the people running the site, the people from the help desk won't put me in contact with them)
