Can't get to website: secure connection is failed

When visiting this website
It says that secure connection is failed.
But the SSL sertificate if valid. And on others browsers the website opens correctly with secure connection.
The SSL certificate is provided by GoDaddy.
GoDaddy tech support informed me that the issue is not on their side and I should ask Tor tech support.
Help me with this issue please.

I checked the cert and it is a GoDaddy Cert. You can get to the site via Tor with http:// and it redirects to

Using a non Tor connection it works well with and without S.

There is something funny though (not funny ha ha). I tried 2 services which just gives you what is returned from the server

One uses perl and the other php. Maybe this can mean something to someone.

I also did a wget. The site is in Israel but in Russian language. The last responds may be something so I checked the certificate for GoDaddy in Tor and Firefox. Both are the same.

Writing to confirm the behavior seen by Anton and BobbyB. The website works for me in Firefox but not Tor browser. Seems to be a problem with the intermediate certificates?

When I try to view certificates, Tor browser only shows the end-entity cert (, whereas Firefox shows 3 certificates ā€“ the cert, and two more: Go Daddy Secure Certificate Authority - G2, and Go Daddy Root Certificate Authority - G2.

I donā€™t know enough to understand why this happens or what to do about it, though. Sorry!
