 I'm using firefox with OCSP verification turned on (security.OCSP.require
 set to true in about:config).
 When I try to read an RFC at ietf.org (e.g.
 http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4086.txt ) I consistently get the error

 Secure Connection Failed

 An error occurred during a connection to www.ietf.org.
 The OCSP server has refused this request as unauthorized.
 (Error code: sec_error_ocsp_unauthorized_request)

 The only "solution" is to turn off ocsp verification globally (or to
 disable the https everywhere IETF rule).
