Got to netscape or safari and get right in or right to the next page. this just happens with firefox. Expected Results: when I click on a site, it should open have filed MANY talkback crashes...never had any follow up.

Does the problem go away if you go to Tools | Options | Advanced | Security | Verification and choose "Do not use OCSP for certificate validation".
Summary: Try to log on get error -5981 then screen telling me I can't logon too busy → Try to log on to PayPal and get error -5981 then screen telling me I can't logon because it's too busy
Also, I assume you're you using a proxy?

http://landfill.mozilla.org/mxr-test/nspr/source/pr/include/prerr.h#105 says 104 /* Connection refused by peer */ 105 #define PR_CONNECT_REFUSED_ERROR (-5981L) I'd guess you were behind a firewall and using a proxy. There's been a big change to FireFox (in builds much newer than yours) to make OCSP work through proxies. Try it.

I believe this is already fixed in newer builds. I think this bug is a candidate to be marked WorksForMe, but I'll let someone else do that.
This is another web site whose certificate bears the extension: Name: Authority Information Access Method: PKIX Online Certificate Status Protocol Location: URI: "http://ocsp.verisign.com" That server seems not to be answering TCP connection requests within our 20 second timeout. At least, that has been my experience with it today. In any case, this is not a problem with FireFox.
This is another bug report citing negative decimal error numbers.
