When using Firefox 3.0 to remotely administer a CUPS machine, CUPS gets a
timeout. Sometimes I receive TLS errors in the CUPS log, sometimes the
CUPS CGI dies of signal 9. Using Safari or IE7 to do the same
administration task (adding or modifying a printer) works just fine.
I tried it with the provided SSL certficiate and also with my own, which
otherwise works just flawlessly.
Rumors have it there is a known bug in CUPS or FF3, but I was unable to
find any evidence on it...
