We're running Windows 8.1 with the current stable Firefox and IE. There's a fresh installation of Apache 2.2 that has been enabled to do SSL.
- http://localhost is reachable in Firefox and IE and serves a website
- http://localhost:443 is reachable in Firefox and IE and serves a server error saying something like "go away, you're not encrypted"
- https://localhost is reachable in IE and serves a website, after accepting the custom untrusted certificate
https://localhost is not reachable in Firefox. It shows a Firefox screen that it cannot resolve the address. The same happens to https://127.0.0.1 as well as the computer's IPv4 address on its regular network interface.
We've tried clearing the browser cache, flushing Windows' DNS cache and rebooting (several times).
Even after directly hitting the site in IE with https enabled, Firefox does not load anything.
I have not tried any other browsers so far.
Why is this happening and how can I fix it?
