When I try to connect to SSL enabled sites, I get the following error.

Error establishing an encrypted connection to (foo) Error Code: -5981.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. type into the address bar "https://investment.datek.com
2. wait
3. read error

Actual Results:  
A popup with the error message 

Error establishing an encrypted connection to (foo) Error Code: -5981. 

appeared with an "ok" button.  I pressed it, the page did not load.

Expected Results:  
Mozilla should have connected to the site.

Just using the standard them.  My machine is an up-to-date RH7.2 intel machine.
It didn't cause any problems.

Reporter, can you try a new profile? Your certificate DB may be corrupted. Type
"~/.mozilla -ProfileManager"

New profile worked.  I found the answer after learning which product/component
to look under.  It seems that enabling OCSP isn't such a good idea.  Once I
disabled it, https sites worked fine again.  I guess I shouldn't mess with stuff
when I don't know what the heck it does.  Thanks for the help.

Verified. If you are using a proxy, this is probably a dupe of Bug 111384, where
you cannot use OCSP through a proxy.

I'm connecting through a DSL router.  My computer has an LAN address, not an
Open Net address.  Does that qualify as a proxy?
