It might be a TLS problem (SSL version problem). I'm quoting the release notes for 0.9.2:

The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol defines rules governing authentication between a web site and browser software and the encryption of information that flows between them. The Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol is an IETF standard based on SSL. TLS 1.0 can be thought of as SSL 3.1. [Mozilla/Netscape 6.1] supports both SSL and TLS.

Some servers that do not implement SSL correctly cannot negotiate the SSL handshake with client software that supports TLS. Such servers are known as "TLS intolerant."

When you select the "Enable TLS" option in the SSL preferences panel, the browser will attempt to use the TLS protocol when making secure connections with a server. If that connection fails because the server is TLS intolerant, the browser will fall back to using SSL 3.0--with one important exception: If you are using a proxy for SSL connections, the browser will not attempt to use TLS at all. Instead, it will attempt to use SSL 3.0. (Bug 88244)
