Apple and Google are fighting inside my iMac.

No browser can do https to Google (and only Google) for one user on a multi-user Mac. What's going on here?

My sons share an older Intel iMac. One of them can't log in to Google, no matter which browser he tries. Other accounts on the box are just fine, including mine. He can get to http://www.google.com, but when he tries to sign in, it attempts to reach https://www.google.com/(a bunch of stuff) and times out, saying it can't establish a connection with google.
Other https sites work for him, just not Google.
I've tried blowing his Safari preferences, cache, etc. away, and we've tried Firefox and Chrome. It'd be a pain to completely remove his user account and make him a new one, but I'm just about to that step unless MeFites can give me something else to try.
