Chosen solution

ok, in this case also try to disable OCSP stapling - enter about:config into the firefox address bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up) & search for the preference named security.ssl.enable_ocsp_stapling. double-click it and change its value to false.

hi Arcadien, microsoft is currently having some issues with their server configuration - please try to reload the page a couple of times (by pressing F5) and see if it is loading then.

you could also temporarily disable the OCSP security mechanism in firefox until MS has fixed their stuff by going into the firefox options > advanced > certificates pnael & and see if that works...

it's degrading a security feature in firefox so i wouldn't recommend leaving it that way - i would switch it back as soon as you've completed your task or else in a couple of days when MS has got its act together again...
