Moz & FF cannot access secure sites behind firewall


I'll be as brief as possible.

Home system: Debian SID
Browsers: Firefox & Mozilla
Can access non-secure AND secure websites (i.e. online banking and my ISP's web mail page).

-------------------------------

Work system 1: Win2k
Browser: I.E. Can access non-secure and secure websites from behind firewall w/ proper proxy configuration.

Mozilla: CAN access non-secure website CANNOT access secure websites from behind firewall.
Firefox: CAN access non-secure website CANNOT access secure websites from behind firewall.

------------------------------------

Work system 2: Debian SID
Browsers: Mozilla & Firefox: CAN access non-secure website CANNOT access secure websites from behind firewall

Weird! Mozilla & Firefox work fine from home to all sites so it's not a browser issue. BUT those same browsers (behind the firewall and yes they DO have internet access and the proxy is properly configured) cannot get to secure sites! I don't beleive it's the OS either because it's the same on Windows as well as Linux. I've driven myself nutso trying to figure out why but for the life of me I cannot. Any ideas why this might happen?

TIA
