I have an SSL certificate for a sub-domain site. The main domain is and that works fine. However, for the site I, and other users, get an error message in Firefox: Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to Peer’s Certificate has been revoked. Error code: SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

Users in Chrome and Safari don't get this message and everything works fine.

Thanks for the response. I did see that other people were having similar trouble. I don't believe I have any of those security software providers. Tracking it down on stackoverflow:

one SSL checker (digicert) is saying the certificate has been revoked due to the OCSP server. I'm attempting to track that down with GoDaddy (the certificate issuer) but they can't replicate the issue.
