I have seen lots of posts on this issue before and NO clear solutions or resolutions.


Admin account works absolutely fine and can access all https sites no problem.
Standard accounts can not access https sites at all from either Safari or Google Chrome.

Safari returns this error:

Safari can’t open the page “https://www.google.com/accounts/Login?hl=en&continue=http://www.google.co.uk/” because Safari can’t establish a secure connection to the server “www.google.com”.

Chrome returns this error (seems more informative):

SSL connection error
Unable to make a secure connection to the server. This may be a problem with the server, or it may be requiring a client authentication certificate that you don't have.
Error 107 (net::ERRSSL_PROTOCOLERROR): SSL protocol error.

My hunch is that it has something to do with Key Chain access but I do not know much about Macs so could be completely wrong in that. I am pretty annoyed as this should 'just work' out the box and really should not require any special set up. I am using parental control to restrict access to adult websites but no other restrictions on the standard accounts have be set what so ever.

If anyone can give me any clues on this or point me in the right direction would much appreciate it.

This is on a Mac Book Pro 15" and Mac OS X 10.5.8.
