So at least now you know it is not a browser problem.
I just read the full thread and the 'install mozilla-psm' series was
funny after your first mail stating that you've installed it.

I don't see why the kernel could be the culprit here and would be
astonished if it was.

It sounds to me more like a problem with your internet provider. There
is perhaps a router that blocks all https trafic. Check if your provider
doesn't REQUIRE that you use a given https proxy.
