Firefox 1.5.0.3 cannot open secure sites (error 8048)

Hi,

For the last couple of days I've not been able to access several (but not all) secure sites.

I get the following error message: "Error establishing an encrypted connection to [website name]. Error Code: -8048."

Has any else had this problem and been able to resolve it.

I've tried reinstalling 1.5.0.3 but that has had no effect, so I'm wondering if there is an obscure setting somewhere that is causing the problem.

Thanks for any help!

Hi Neil,

Thanks for that. Since posting that, I'd found the page you refer to (http://kb.mozillazine.org/SSL_is_disabled), and the second suggestion on that page (select "Do not use OCSP for certificate validation") did the trick.

Not sure why it stopped working after a while though, and why one of my PCs took several days before it also required the setting change!

Cheers
