I can view my HTTPS site in FF 3.5.6 but not in 3.6.8

This week, FF 3.6.8 stopped being able to access an HTTPS site that I edit. The status bar rapidly alternates between "Connected to..." and "Connecting to..." before the browser give up and displays a "Connection was reset" error page.

Our network uses a proxy server, and another machine on the network has FF 3.5.6 with the same add-ons (Adblock Plus, Firebug, Web Developer), but I can get to the site fine from the older browser.

My site's HTACCESS file has a RewriteRule to force pages to load securely, and this version of FF 3.6.8 can only see my site if I disable the HTTPS.

My guess is that the problem resides in how this specific copy of FF interacts with the network's proxy server. At home I have two machines with FF 3.6.8 and both of them can get to my site. Any help would be great.

Still not working. Firebug's Net display suggests that the DNS lookup is failing.
