Default Can't access HTTPS websites on my Mac when tethering

So I am having trouble accessing HTTPS sites on my Mac when I tether it to my Nexus 5 using the built in tethering software. It will not load anything secure including google but it all loads fine on the phone itself. I Would appreciate any ideas anyone has.

i had such a problem a few years ago with another mobile, took me a while to figure out that i blocked port 443 with the iptables firewall rules for a android system component (cannot remember which one it was).

WiFi tethering or USB or Bluetooth? Also does it happen on other devices?
