Other gravatars are also affected, but not in SE Chat.

When I copy the image URL, I get

Chrome retrieves the image, no problem, but Opera says:

  • OCSP errors are often because of network glitches (the certificate issuer's OCSP server not responding in time). Opera doesn't retest the same site for 24h, so the glitches may seem a bit more persistent than they actually are (there's a way to bypass that limit, but I don't remember the details right now).

  • @Braiam can you confirm this is also an issue for e.g. github (if you use gravatar there)? I think it's time to look at gravatar.com (added Firefox to the title)

    @Braiam seems to have been resolved now (on Opera at least)
