The cause for this was actually PEBKAC. I do have a SOCKS proxy
running on IPv4 localhost, port 1080 and Iceweasel/Conkeror is
configured to use "localhost:1080" as SOCKS proxy.

I've recently installed robustirc-bridge, which by default also opens
a SOCKS proxy on port 1080. And upon reboot that one either was
started first or started up on IPv6 localhost. In either case:
Iceweasel/Conkeror was connecting to robustirc-bridge's SOCKS proxy
which can only proxy the IRC protocol as it changes those connection
to the robustirc protocol.

Hence HTTPS (and HTTP) didn't work over it and Iceweasel/Conkeror
failed for HTTPS with the error message reported in this bug report. I
think it's possible that the original reporter had similar proxy
