Firefox Tracking Flags

(Not tracked)

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.11; rv:50.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/50.0
Build ID: 20161129173726

Steps to reproduce:

I tried to use my university's library site to access a journal.  It uses the following to take me to the EBSCO host site.

The new release of Firefox makes it impossible for me to use the proxy that the library at my university uses to access the EBSCO site.   I keep getting a message that there is something wrong with the certificate.  Here is the URL

Actual results:

Browser refused to load the page, saying there was something wrong with the certificate.  I tried to create an exception, but the new dialog did not like the URL above.  It tells me that there is nothing wrong with the certificate.  So I am kind of stuck.

Here is the message displayed to me:
The connection to was interrupted while the page was loading.

    The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
    Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

Expected results:

Browser should have loaded the page and/or given me some option.

It does not work on Fx4.0 & 28.0 & 51.0b6 & Nightly 53.0a1 (2016-12-10) & MS Edge, and Chrome say "ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR". This looks to be a issue of the site.

I tested this and I can confirm what YF said in comment 1. I have the same results on all the browsers that I used: Firefox Nighlty 53, FF 50 release, FF 49, FF 48, Safari and Chrome. I think is a site issue not a browser one.
Marking this as Resolved: Incomplete due to the lack of response from the reporter.
If the issue is still reproducible with the latest Firefox version, feel free to reopen the bug with more information.
