Firefox/Android 2.3.3 hangs when trying to load http://www.cacert.org/certs/root.crt. Bug?


I am running a rooted Dell Streak (Custom Firmware DSC 2.3 which is Android 2.3.3 based). Firefox is version 19 (has been tested with older releases too, same results). cacerts.bks has been updated with the crts from cacert.org according to http://nblock.org/2011/09/03/how-to-update-the-android-certificate-store/). I'm planning to sync my Android against my mozilla full-sync-server which works already very nice with my desktops. I wanted to import the crts from CACert.org into my Firefox for Android certificate store which results in a hanging Android which I then have to force-close. To reproduce just click on the following links using Android 2.3.3 (I can reproduce with the above mentioned Android phone): http://www.cacert.org/certs/root.crt http://www.cacert.org/certs/class3.crt

This is Fixed on Aurora (http://aurora.mozilla.org) and Nightly (http://nightly.mozilla.org) for Android.

Question owner

Thanks for the replies. Concerning Cookies: I did a complete Wipe of all User-Data of Firefox/Android including all settings -> no change.

So the Aurora-Release you are referring will be version 20.0 ? The nightly build suggests version 22.0?

So am I right in assuming that this will be fixed in 6 weeks with 20.0?

Thanks and regards, Karl
