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?
