Attached patch Proposed patch (obsolete) — Splinter Review
This is actually mostly related to Help updates, the label changes are fairly straight-forward. I've left the file names and helpTopic="ssl_prefs" target as they are, modifying those with s/ssl/ssltls/ as well might be painful.

Ian, I've also updated the section on supported SSL and TLS versions in the Certificates Help content which is obsolete now that SSL 3.0 was deprecated.

The same applies to the prefpane="ssl_pane" identifier, etc.

Proposed patch

>+<!ENTITY ssltls.label "SSL / TLS">
I think we should stick with SSl/TLS for consistency.

Yeah, the preference category was the first label which I had modified, where "SSL / TLS" looked slightly better to me with those spaces. But then, it looked better without them when "SSL/TLS" was part of the text.
