I'm experiencing the same problem with phpMyAdmin, Firefox 3, 
nginx 0.7.[78] and SSL. The problem does not occur with Konqueror 3.5. 
And it previously worked fine with nginx 0.7.6 and Firefox 3. So the bug 
must have been introduced in nginx 0.7.7.

I do not see any error messages in the logs either. Firefox just tries 
to load the page "forever" without displaying anything.

My SSL-certificate is self-signed, so this does not seem to be the cause.

The only ssl options I have set in nginx.conf are:

	ssl on;
	ssl_certificate         /path/to/cert.cert;
	ssl_certificate_key     /path/to/cert.key;

Kind regards
