The message should really say "In order to view SSL sites, you need to have PSM installed" or something similar. If you installed from RPM, you also need the mozilla-psm package. Otherwise, re-install and don't uncheck PSM this time around. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 47617 ***

Where can one find this PSM bit?
I think there were some instrunctions on http://www.mozilla.org on building psm into mozilla. The other alternative is to download a recent nightly build and it should be installed.
