accessing gets a cert error which seems to be bad ca in settings how delete ca wo locking it out

I try to log into as I have hosting there and I get the 'Secure Connection Failed' error indicating timeout. Sometimes try again works in which case I get the OLD version of the CPanel page, mostly it doesn't. I called them and the best we can figure is that there is an old certificate in my settings (I have been using Firefox for a long time), but looking at certs to delete them indicates delete also sets distrust and future certs from the same CA won't be accepted and I don't want that. So how do I clean this up?
