You probably have some certificate chain problems that Rekonq is
sensitive to. You support weak algorithms -- try:

SSLProtocol -ALL +TLSv1 +TLSv1.1 +TLSv1.2
SSLCompression off

With RC4, you have some weakness, but without RC4, you'll lose a 
lot of older browsers. In a year or three you can probably drop
that, too.

And when you renew the cert, you should get SHA2 instead of

That's all the things I can see.
