We have a server with multiple SSL-enabled vhosts, certificate is the same for all of them.

SNI does not seem to be enabled.

When I try to open any url (even the one which is supposed to throw 404 error) apache2 child failes with segfault (11) under firefox, and works fine in IE.

Solaris 10
Apache 2.2.15 mpm-prefork
OpenSSL some 1.0x compiled into apache2.

Any ideas?

Couple of years ago I encountered something similar (although with Linux + Apache), then it was due a faulty SSLCACertificate file (or its permissions, can't remember any more).

Was it just crashing or been browser-specific like this one? – BarsMonster Aug 26 '10 at 12:08
Can't remember any more. The Apache access/error log did show something odd like %X%X%X%X during SSL requests, so if you are seeing the same bug than I did, you should also have some strange log entries. – Janne Pikkarainen Aug 26 '10 at 12:15
Looks like it's not the case, we only have segfaults in our log. – BarsMonster Aug 26 '10 at 12:17
