I have vSphere 5.1 comprising of 3 esx hosts. All is working fine except
that "overview" under tab "Performance" saying "Navigation to the webpage was canceled"

WEb client shows performance overview data fine. Also the "advanced" tab under
performance also ok

I have changed extension.xml (located at C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\VirtualCenter Server\extensions\com.vmware.vim.stats.report)
 

****************
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<config>
&#9;<extension>
&#9;&#9;<name>com.vmware.vim.stats.report</name>
&#9;&#9;<version>1.0.0</version>

10.237.1.101 is IP address of my vCenter5.1 Server


Any ideas?

Having a similar issue.  Performance page is working from the server that is hosting vcenter, but not from workstations on the network.  Also from an XP workstation, Security settings on WS have no effect. I will be looking to see if you find an answer.

I found the cipher keys in the line beginning "<Connector SSLEnabled="true". Mine is a default installation, and as such does not have the "port=8443".  
Replaced keys per attachment and performance graphs now working from server and workstations.

Thank You for posting.
