archive.org (or www.archive.org) seems to perform an immediate redirection to https://archive.org. Wget has a problem with the self-signed secure certificate and is unable to establish a secure ssl connection. Firefox 2 or Netscape 9 (which usually don't have problems connecting to secure sites) take some time to process archive.org and eventually want to go to "https://:/".

Opera 12.02 also does a redirect to "https://www.archive.org/"but the page comes back as "302 Found / nginx/1.4.6 (Ubuntu)"

Was working just last week in FF2, but not now with or without javascript.

Wayback machine still works. http://web.archive.org/ forwards to http://archive.org/web/ and works. Search of Internet Archive works with results page summaries, but links redirect to https and "The connection was reset" in FF2.

Works fine for me on Win ME with Opera 12.02, Firefox 8, K-Meleon 1.6 and D+. OffByOne fails to open it however, letting me know it can't open https://:/.

No problems here with Firefox 9.0.1 on 98SE (with KernelEx 4.5.2).

Maybe root certificates need to be updated, I know the CloudMe application - which also uses secure connection - fails to connect unless certificates are updated.

archive.org is working today for both netscape 9 and ff 2. I swear it wasn't working yesterday (as described in my first post). However, I believe I've found a website that is exhibiting the same problem:

http://webserve.com/

In netscape and FF I get: Your browser is not accepting header redirects. Please click here (http://www.webserve.com/)

It would seem that has nothing to do with ssl, but if you google that message you get stuff like this:

Problem with SSL redirects:
http://www.silverstr...e-cms/show/8835

Looking at what wget does with webserve.com, I can't see any indication that a redirection is intended.

I got the same message as above in Firefox 9.

Then I enabled HTTPS Everywhere - no dice.

 

I got a principle: if it won't work, I don't need it. :)

http://archive.org and http://archive.org/d...ls/AllAmeri1936 still not working here (w/ or w/o JS). Twitter is the same.

I see Wait... Connecting... Wait... Connecting... (OB1) or Connecting... Connected... Connecting... (FF2) in the status bar for all these sites but never https://:/.

OffByOne still gives a Ubuntu server "HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently" message.

In OB1 http://details.archi...rg/AllAmeri1936 gives what appears to be the home page, but also containing a page not found message.
In FF2 it's just an empty "Page not found: We’re sorry, the page you have requested is not available" under a sparse menu bar.

http://details.archive.org/movies is interesting.

In summary, not working in FF2 for me!
