OpenVPN on port 443, page loading problems(https?)

I've a working OpenVPN server on port 443, and I'm using it to connect to internet trough of it.
Everything goes fine, I've reach a lot of services, like Steam, webpages, etc. But I have some problems when I'm trying to visit some https sites (facebook,twitter,paypal,etc.), these pages not loading properly.

port 443
dev tap
push "redirect-gateway def1"
push "dhcp-option DNS"

I've a Bind9 dns server on it, dns flush not helping.

Is there any idea what would be the problem?

You know 443 port is reserved is for https. So why you do not run Openvpn on different port?

Yes I know, but port 443 is usually opened in everywhere (free wifi spots, etc). I've an other server, with the same configuration(port443), but there is no problems with those pages.
