    SSL problem with Jboss in Firefox Only

    Rob Pac Newbie

      Hi,

      I'm a Jboss beginner, (using jboss-3.2.5) but I SWEAR I have been through all of the documentation and am stuck on a ridiculous problem. I've successfully created a keystore and csr and obtained and thus imported a key from a trusted authority (Entrust). I modified jbossweb-tomcat50.sar/server.xml and pointed that to my keystore and can successfully get to the "Welcome to JBoss" page at https://myserveraddress:8443 in Internet Explorer. However, that same URL gives me a blank page in Firefox. Even though the page is blank, the lock at the bottom of the browser window shows the site is secured and knows it's from a trusted source (since Entrust is one of the certs included by default in firefox) which leads me to believe some of the solutions I've seen about importing the cert locally would not apply. I think it has to be an SSL problem though because I can open http://myserveraddress:8080 in both browsers just fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Just in case, here is the relevant section in my server.xml file:

      <!-- SSL/TLS Connector configuration using the admin devl guide keystore -->
      < Connector port="8443" address="${jboss.bind.address}"
      maxThreads="100" minSpareThreads="5" maxSpareThreads="15"
      scheme="https" secure="true" clientAuth="false"
      keystoreFile="${jboss.server.home.dir}/conf/my.keystore"
      keystorePass="mypass" sslProtocol = "TLS" URIEncoding="UTF-8"/>
