Meh, disable them all and check if that helps.

Disable OCSP.  Does it fix things?

There's a lot of crap the browser will check before it tries to connect
somewhere.  And while you are usually better off with some of them disabled,
this is not true for everything.

At some point it is going to be easier to just tcpdump -X -s1600 (or use
wireshark) the offending traffic, and looking at what is inside.
