Do you mean you permit just "ESTABLISHED", not "RELATED,ESTABLISHED"?

If you don't permit "related", you'll drop any ICMP errors. That will
break PMTU discovery and cause just the problems you're seeing.

If you log everything that's dropped, that would show up in your logs as
ICMP type 3 (Destination Unreachable) code 4 (Fragmentation Needed and
Don't Fragment was Set).
