    Hi,

    found that this topic was discussed before, but didn't find if there's a workaround. So far I always believed the problem is caused by old or wrong certificates. And in most cases the problems could be solved by installing new certificates out of the certificate chain. But in some cases it was impossible for me to load a specific site. This morning I found a very interesting example:
    When trying to load https://www.ip-phone-forum.de my Touchpad says that the site could not be loaded (Error 2035 on a Veer). Lumberjack says: "Unknown Handled Error: SSL connect error https://www.ip-phone-forum.de".
    When I checked the certificate chain on my desktop PC I found that the site is using exact the same root- and intermediate certificates that I'm using on my site https://blog.schdefoon.de. It's a Let's encrypt certificate. And I had no problems loading sites with Let's encrypt certificates so far.

    So I would guess that the error in this case has nothing to do with possible old certificates on my device. Maybe it is caused by the server settings?
    How can I get more information about this error - and is there a chance to fix this?

    Best regards, Stefan

    I was going to suggest trying to loading the site using a desktop browser - which might have more detailled error messages. Well, I am suggesting that, but I just tried loading it in Qupzilla and it worked.

    So it may be something in the configuration of the site or the stock browser being strict, but I assume Qupzilla is fairly secure and it hasn't complained. I think it comes with a lot of it's own machinery built in rather than interfacing with webOS much.

    When you write of installing certificates, I wonder, do you have the OSSL upgrade & bundle installed?

    On my Touchpad is OpenSSL Updater and RootCertsUpdate installed. On my Veer none of them.

    It's difficult to locate the problem on desktop PC, because there is no problem. All is configured well for the browser and OS I'm using.

    When checking my site and the ip-phone-forum on https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/ there are many differences. I don't know exactly what all of the information is about. But maybe the information in "Handshake simulation" may be interesting. There are "Server closed connection" messages on several systems for ip-phone-forum. Even one for OpenSSL 0.9.8y.
    My site seems to be supported for OpenSSL 0.9.8y. Is exactly this point the problem? The only solution would be another OpenSSL Update? Or has OpenSSL nothing to do when calling a site with the browser?

    There's another test to check my client: https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/viewMyClient.html
    There are several warnings, but I can't find a proof, that loading of ip-phone-forum will fail when using stock browser or Advanced Browser. Maybe there is a proof but I don't understand...

    I tried https://www.ip-phone-forum.de/ in my Pre3 and got the Error 2035.

    The Google weblite url works.

    Yes, that's a really great patch and a usable workaround.
    What a pity that it doesn't work with all sites (e.g. www.faz.net) or loading images fullsize (e.g. opening the preview images of my site). But that is not the fault of the patch

    Yes, unfortunately there will always be sites that won't work. www.faz.net does however work for me on my touchpad (JavaScript on). m.faz.net works too (both with JavaScript on and off; but in the latter case it doesn't show images).
