yup, had exactly the same problems, with ssl not being accepted using gmail

it's not critical, so i'm consigned to waiting till it and a myriad of
other bugs are fixed. frustrating i know

did you know there's a workaround to get dillo to do ssl? it requires
a re-compile, but doesn't appear too complicated

or maybe you could give fennec a go?
