    When using Mozilla Firefox recently I encountered the problem of getting the following response from two separate secure https login servers:
    1) Gibson Research Corporation, Internet Security testing (for Shields Up!) at:
    https://grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2, and
    2) my ISP WebMail server at:
    https://webmail.atl.earthlink.net

    Error Code 500.
    Message: Internal Server Error.

    I soon discovered that when installing the software supplied by my ISP, they caution the following when using a non-IE browser during the installation process, and instruct you to setup the connection settings for localhost:8080 with regard to their dial-up accelerator, otherwise the accelerator may not work properly.

    This conflicts directly with the solution to the above Error Code 500 problem:

    The solution is as follows with Mozilla Firefox:
    Pull down: Tools->Options->General->Connection->Connection Settings
    Choose: Direct connection to the Internet
