I've never heard of anyone reporting this before, and the scenario of
navigating to an https site is pretty common. Since you see it in swt
releases that span the last few years, it must be triggered by something
that's uncommon in your environment.
A google search for that error message finds various discussions of
users seeing this in older versions of stand-alone IE. My initial guess
is that something in your environment is triggering this (eg.- a setting
in stand-alone IE), but you're only seeing it in the SWT Browser because
it embeds an older IE version by default (see
http://www.eclipse.org/swt/faq.php#browsernativeie ). The Browser in
swt 3.7.x intended to always embed the latest installed IE version but
fell short in some cases, the resulting bug is
So like the other responder suggested, a first thing to try is to add
the "-Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.IEVersion=8888" line to the end of your
eclipse.ini file. If this helps then you can use this as a workaround
for now, and when https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=361861
is fixed then the workaround can be removed. If this does not help your
case then please follow up.
