    A couple things to try off the top of my head:

    Check your time/date. Many SSL certificates have an expiration date and if your clock is wrong they might not work.

    Check that port 443 is not blocked on your firewall. SSL uses that port.

    Try Verisign's test page:
    http://www.verisign.com/advisor/check.html
    It will tell you if there is a problem with your SSL too.

    I know you are using Firefox. In tools/options/web features.. Be sure to tic the Java and Javascript boxes and to remove the website (if there is) from the block list.
