I fully understand that it is not a KDE problem, nevertheless I just checked 
with OCSP verification active on my FF 43.0 and I could access 
www,bugs,todo,reviewboard w/o any problems. This is on openSUSE. Could this 
also have some regional background such that the problem is only visible in 
certain areas?
