Hi!

Just a short wish: can u guys change the

"Website B cannot communicate securely because they have no common encryption algorithm"

error popup messagebox to something else, like the new DNS error message that displays in the browser window, _also keeping the failing URL_, i.e.:

"Establishing a secure connection to $URL failed, because the site offers no encryption method that is currently enabled in your Firefox settings. _Klick here_ to open the Security settings."

.... or some more explanations like that. Maybe this message should also offer the choice to use one of the site's offered algorithms although disabled. 

Thanks,
Kurt

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Disable RC4 stream cipher in about:config
2. run in lots of trouble with especially US sites (i.e. connect.apple.com)
