Hi everyone,

I recently updated the following packages:

Code:
dev-libs/nspr-4.13.1
dev-util/ctags-5.8
app-shells/bash-completion-2.4-r1
dev-libs/nss-3.28.1
app-text/libwpg-0.3.1
media-libs/libwebp-0.5.2
dev-lang/python-exec-2.4.4
app-eselect/eselect-python-20160516
media-libs/flac-1.3.2-r1
dev-python/lxml-3.6.4-r1
dev-python/beautifulsoup-4.5.1
media-video/ffmpeg-2.8.10
www-client/chromium-55.0.2883.75
mail-client/thunderbird-45.6.0-r1
sys-libs/pam-1.2.1
dev-libs/apr-util-1.5.4
dev-libs/redland-1.0.16


and since then, Firefox doesn't seem to load either Google or Wikipedia. Other HTTP/HTTPS sites are fine; If I look at the network traffic, I can see my GET request but the response is empty and there is a grey circle (which usually is green when found, yellow redirect etc) which makes me think it never actually sent the request. If I try to go to HTTP for Google, it redirects to HTTPS and then stops as above.

Any suggestion for a fix or how to diagnose it? Should I try and downgrade all the packages (assuming it's related)?

Firefox ver: ESR 45.6.0

Thank you.

HAve you already dried some other browsers?

I use google-chrome (binary )
firefox-bin
opera-beta

I use different browsers for different things, so my "online" profile is a bit smaller. It'S a good practise to keep work and private stuff seperate from a browser perspective.

It looks more like a DNS / firewall / router issue when you are unable to reach google for example.

Hi, thanks for the reply; forgot the most important thing: it works well on other browser so it's not network related.

have you checked with a clean home directory. E.g. create a new user and see if its gone. I highly doubt it, but there is a small chance that it fix it

This sounds a bit like =dev-libs/nss-3.28 - Firefox refuses to load Google and other http2 websites ( NS_ERROR_NET_INADEQUATE_SECURITY ). I thought from that description that the user-visible error would be a bit more blatant than the results OP describes, but perhaps not.

@Roman_Gruber I tried with different profiles which should be pretty much the equivalent (as the other browser are working I think it's restricted to Firefox).

@Hu That looks promising, my nss is in a odd state:

Code:
[?] dev-libs/nss
     Available versions:  3.22.2^t 3.23^t ~3.25-r1^t ~3.26.1^t 3.27.2^t [M]~3.28^t {(+)cacert +nss-pem utils ABI_MIPS="n32 n64 o32" ABI_PPC="32 64" ABI_S390="32 64" ABI_X86="32 64 x32"}
     Installed versions:  3.28.1^t(17:56:02 14/01/17)(nss-pem -cacert -utils ABI_MIPS="-n32 -n64 -o32" ABI_PPC="-32 -64" ABI_S390="-32 -64" ABI_X86="32 64 -x32")
     Homepage:            http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/pki/nss/
     Description:         Mozilla's Network Security Services library that implements PKI support


But apparently version 3.28 is installed. I'll downgrade and see what happens. My effects are different as it doesn't even try to navigate, just does nothing if I try to hit the page.

Downgrading nss worked.

Thank you so much. It was really painful.
