Application does not load via HTTPS (on facebook)

  • The application on facebook does not load when accessing via secure connection (https), it gives the error:

    Secure Connection Failed

    An error occurred during a connection to
    SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length.

    (Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long)

  • This problem has been temporary solved and https will be available before October 1. Meanwhile load the Video Chat on facebook ( and before the application is loaded, you will be asked to turn off secure browsing:

    Turn off secure browsing?
    We can't display this content while you're viewing Facebook over a secure connection (https).
    Would you like to temporarily switch to a regular connection (http) to use this app?
    You will have a secure connection upon your next login.

    Press "Continue" and everything should be fine, the application will start without HTTPS

    The other workaround is turning off secure browsing:
    Account >> Account settings >> Security (on left) >> Secure Browsing (Secure browsing is currently [[b]enabled) - click "Edit", uncheck "Browse Facebook on a secure connection (https) when possible" and "Save Changes"
