SSL very slow via IE but not Firefox; non-SSL is fine though

P: 1

I recently attempted to run Javascript-based (& AJAX) webmail PHP scripts on my Apache2/Fedora Core 6 web server. I have come across a very strange problem that I can't seem to find a resolution for anywhere. Hopefully you can help. :) The issue:

When loading a Javascript-based web page via HTTPS in Internet Explorer (IE) (either v6 or v7), each page takes 10-15 seconds to load (sometimes longer). When reloading the exact same page in HTTP instead of HTTPS, the page loads as fast as it normally should (1-3 seconds). Also, if I load a non-Javascript PHP page in IE via HTTPS, it loads fine - which leads me to believe that Javascript is somehow involved in this issue.

Further, it appears as though IE is the only browser affected by this. When I load the same Javascript-based page in Firefox vis HTTPS, the page loads as fast as it should (1-3 seconds).

Any ideas/suggestions?

Fedora Core 6
Apache 2.2
