Comment (by starlight):

 Oops!  I forgot that "Software Security Device" is
 what downloaded intermediate certificates are
 labeled in the CA-cert window.  The troublesome
 certificate is one of these.  In my defense
 it not a terribly clear designation.

 So probably the site that was vexing me was
 failing to include the intermediate cert in
 the web-server configuration--a not uncommon
 (though a rather lame) mistake.  The challenge
 was on a news site persisted for months,
 and so started getting under my skin.

 However I still believe it's a good idea to track
 the current Mozilla built-in certificate file in
 Tor Browser.  Not difficult to do and helpful to
 overall security.
