SSL Handshake failed

Post by uzername » Mon Jun 12, 2017 1:43 pm

Midori 0.4.3
Epiphany 3.10.3
Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa

Neither Midori nor Epiphany browsers seem able to browse https sites, giving the SSL handshake error message. Https works in chromium and firefox. I think it also didn't work in Opera when I tried it. I need another browser besides chromium and firefox because of multiple account login/cookie issues. This is getting frustrating, does anyone have any suggestions how to fix midori or epiphany to be able to use secure sites?


Edit: I installed vivaldi, which works. It seems to be Midori, Epiphany, and Opera that are buggy in Mint for some reason.

Just installed Midori and its able to view https sites including duckduckgo and gmail login using Mint 17,3 KDE.

Try installing glib-networking if still not able to view https sites install libsoup-gnome2.4-1

That's what's strange - that was the first thing I checked after googling the problem, but I already have those installed:

Code: Select all

12:11 PM:~ $ sudo apt-get install glib-networking glib-networking-common libsoup-gnome2.4-1
Reading package lists... Done

glib-networking is already the newest version.
glib-networking-common is already the newest version.
libsoup-gnome2.4-1 is already the newest version.

I'm running XFCE4, btw. I wonder if something there is causing a problem, lacking some gnome or other library, etc.?

Edit: >>> Here's an error I'm getting:

(midori:19452): libsoup-WARNING **: (soup-uri.c:1097):soup_uri_set_path: runtime check failed: (path != NULL)

This site I'm trying to access is here:
https://gre.wgw.interactivebrokers.com/ ... vlet/login

"runtime check failed" = some java error?
