Error while attempting to connect gmail.com, regardless of the proxy used.


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter http://gmail.com
2. Error establishing an encrypted connection to www.google.com. 

Actual Results:  

Error Code: -5961


The end result same with https://web.de, however https://www.pobox.sk/ works.
Squid proxy or Privoxy was used. With Mozilla it all works flawlessly.
I've realised this error was caused by Advanced -> Validation -> OSCP.

However, numerical error code isn't very intuitive, right?
Original summary:
  Error establishing an encrypted connection to www.google.com. Error Code: -5961

The original problem is a dupe of bug 111384 (OSCP through proxy)

Bug 107491 is about improving PSM error messages.
