Usually this is caused by the fact that the CAcert root certificates are not installed in the browser, see

If you have CAcert root certificates installed (and trusted), there are still occasional problems that the old version of the root certificate is somewhere in traffic, which still used MD5 for self-signature, see

If both of these possible causes are eliminated we'd need to know which browser you are using.

I use Firefox. Maybe it would be a good idea to make the main site load without SSL as default. This would partially solve the problem.

On the main website should be a information about need of installing the Root certificates to enter the SSL or install a SSL certificate with donsn't require doing that
