None of https-using URLs worked for me with a 3.6.x firefox
on my FreeBSD-7.x/amd64 desktop back in March. The browser
would usually just hang.

Thunderbird-3.x had a similar problem -- although the first SSL-based
connection to my IMAP server would succeed, the MUA would not be
able to reconnect later...

Going back to 3.5.x (and 2.0.x for Thunderbird) fixed the problems.
Folks on gecko@ could not reproduce it, so I am "glad" somebody
else confirms, I'm not a complete lunatic :-)
