This is weird. The site automagically is working now with PM 28.60a1. There was a period of about 30 minutes when it was not working with PM but opening successfully with Google Chrome 72.0.3626.121 and Opera 60.0.3255.109.

This is really a non-issue now.

Maybe they just renewed, needed to fine tune something?.
The certificate shown in the viewer became valid just starting today.

I think someone tinkered with the TLS setup while replacing the certificate and didn't know what they were doing. Likely broke it for everyone.
