Are you sure that the site has a valid SSL certificate? A few seconds
of testing in MiniBrowser shows that visiting a page with a valid SSL
certificate, such as https://www.google.com/, works fine while
visiting one with an invalid certificate (eg, https://google.com/,
which is invalid because the certificate is for www.google.com) fails
to load. The frame load delegate has a
webView:didFailProvisionalLoadWithError:forFrame: message dispatched
to it with the NSError containing a NSURLErrorDomain/
NSURLErrorServerCertificateUntrusted. This is the first thing I'd
check for in your application. If this is not what is happening, I
think you'll need to provide further information about sites which
demonstrate the problem, and whether the problem can be observed in
