Topic: Firefox 2 login issue fix for Mac (& other?) users (7 msgs / 172 lines)
1) From: Dave Ehrenkranz
I was having a problem "recreating" my login using the newest release  
of Firefox (version 2.0.0.2) on my Mac. But now the issue is solved  
for me at least.
At Rich's suggestion I looked at :http://forums.mozillazine.org/   
and found the following message which solved my problem.
I did what you said and found the following message which solved the  
issue.
"It only worked once I set the security.ssl3.rsa_rc4_40_md5  
preference to true"
Just to be clear what I actually did:
1) I typed "about:config" without quotes in the address bar.
2) Entered "security.ssl" without quotes in the filter field.
3) Double clicked the "security.ssl3.rsa_rc4_40_md5" line (last line  
on my machine) to set the Value to true.
And everything works. So even though I do not need to order more  
beans I am ready!
Hope this helps others,
dave

Dave,
May not be an issue for MS PC users, my version of Firefox [also
2.0.0.2] allowed me to recreate the login with out problems.
However, I have saved your instructions in case it dies down the
road!  Thanks,

It's an issue for Mac and PC, I suppose.  During a recent order, FF 2 
wouldn't let me in.  The suggested fix is fine, works, but be careful.  
The Commonwealth of VA is now requiring all of it's online depts to 
disable all SSL <3.  Most browsers won't accept SSL2 anymore, which is 
the issue.  I suspect IE7 would do the same.

MS will go this route once they figure out how to own it....

Dave,
Good steps, but it didn't work for me. (FF 2 latest version, Mac OS 10.4.8)

Frank,
Hmmm.... wonder why it didn't work for you. Let us know if you find  
out. I am also using OS 10.4.8

Rather than the one Dave listed, the field you want to switch to "true" 
may be
security.enable_ssl2 t
See:http://kb.mozillazine.org/SSL_is_disabledfor more information.
