  1. I keep getting the message cannot open webpage (like Gmail/hotmail/etc..)
    "because SSL is disabled"

    I have deleted all extra junk from the computer and am using less space

    I also downloaded the new Mozilla Firefox updated version
    I have also double checked the OPTIONS section and SSL is enabled
    so I'm not sure why I keep getting this error message.

    Regular webpages work ...but any webpage that requires user input like email or something does not work!

    Any help or suggestions to get rid of this error message are appreciated
    Thanks to realblackstuff for your help in the past as well!

    Have a great day!

    SSL is secure sockets layer. Perhaps you accidently turned off ability to look at encrypted info? Check your settings.

    Yes, as I mentioned, I have checked in the options where it says SSL 2.0 and SSL 3.0 and both have a check mark next to them.

    "I have also double checked the OPTIONS section and SSL is enabled"

    thanks anyway for your help
    any other suggestions are most appreciated!

    Try unchecking them,the TLS one as well,click ok.Then reopen it and recheck them all.

    thanks for your reply!
    Yes, I tried that and it didn't work
    I really thought that would do the trick.

    But, I still can't open gmail/hotmail...because of the "ssl is disabled" error message

    thanks anyway though!
    any other suggestions are welcome~!
    thanks in advance!

    give mozilla suite a try.... I find it far superior to firefox. I only install the web browser in mozilla suite.

    www.mozilla.org

    which part of the suite would be just the web browser??
    I checked the mozilla suite site....and I only see the option to download the whole suite...??

    thanks in advance!

    when installing it- it will as you what parts you want to install. There are 3. Pick and choose what you want. Normal install does all of them Choose custom.

    The mail program is basically a clone of thunderbird and it's darn good.

    SSL error fix

    I had the same problem and FINALLY found a web site that told you that you have to fix it on the Mozilla Firefox TOOLBAR under tools, options, enable SSL.

    I googled "enable SSL" and got to the Qantas, of all things, website which explained it clearly. Good luck!
