Bug 1106470 will be dropping support for SSLv3.  Once that happens, there's
little point in having the SSLv3 option in Privacy & Security->SSL panel.

Attached patch Patch removing obsolete strings (obsolete) — Splinter Review
(Quoting bug 1137991 comment #20)

Unless those backend changes get backed out from aurora or beta based on whatever is decided prior to bug 1141394 on the Firefox side, this should become effective with SeaMonkey 2.36, at which time I'll ask for review of the patch.
Depends on: 1141324
Attachment #8593430 - Attachment is obsolete: true
The core change removing SSLv3 support was allowed to land on Firefox 39.0 earlier this week.
Comment on attachment 8615678 [details] [diff] [review]
Unbitrotted for bug 1141324 (v2)

Core string changes have checked in, mozilla-central changeset 52885a6f8ad6 -
there was no follow-up I can see blocking bug 1141394.

Requesting review to remove those (now dead) strings from SeaMonkey.
