Connection reset error with Twitter, only at school and only on Firefox

^This. Everything works fine when I'm at home, but when I'm at school, Twitter either never finishes loading or gives a connection was reset error. No other site does this, and Twitter works fine at school on rekonq and epiphany (it can also be pinged just fine). I tried putting Firefox in safe mode, and the same thing happens.

This may be tough to troubleshoot, as I'm a student and I have no access to the router configurations.

Nevermind, I found the problem. My school is incapable of finishing loading any sites through SSL, ever (without a proxy), and Twitter decided to lock my account to SSL without telling me. I just had to set FoxyProxy to use the proxy for https://twitter.com and it was fixed.

I suppose other programs could still load Twitter because they didn't have the cookies to stay in my account, which means they weren't redirected to https.
