Should we be telling everyone to turn off OCSP? From what I've read of bug reports, having OCSP enabled will only cause errors when you go to certain sites who have set up OCSP wrong, or if the OCSP service isn't working. I think we should say something along the lines of if they frequently get the error on a certain site, they can turn it off, but not suggest turning it off to solve other problems.--Np 18:11, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Bug 110161 (ocspdefault) – enable OCSP by default fixed on trunk. They made it so that if the OCSP doesn't work, by default, the user isn't informed.--Np 06:27, 16 June 2007 (UTC)


Can this really not happen to Thunderbird? If so, I don't understand how this could not happen but other SSL-relating things couldn't. I figured it could happen if you were subscribed to a feed for https, for example.--Np 19:44, 26 June 2007 (UTC)
