10.4: A fix for post-security-update WebKit SSL issues
Authored by: pepi on Dec 05, '06 10:56:27AM

Even easier without loosing your preferences:

Go to /Applications/Utilities and open Keychain.app. In the Preferences move to the "Certificates" tab and alter the popup-menu for OCSP to read "Off" or "Require if Cert indicates" and Safari will open SSL sites again. "Best attempt" and "Require for all certs" keeps my Safari from opening secure sites.

The same problem also arises with Apple's Mail.app and SSL connections to POP, IMAP and SMTP server. Fixed that way as well.

OCSP to read "Off" or "Require if Cert indicates"

The only preference saved to that file is exaclty that, so you can remove it safely.
A painful removal of preference files was how I discovered what caused the problem. After I found what file was involved, and seeing what it did contain I didn't bother to track down how it was created, at first. Whan I found out, I thought that reverting to default behavior was still better than changing the setting (which proved to be a bad idea, as the "original" change ended up causing troubles).

As I said, no reason to change anything if it already works.
