This is a problem which was not present >in the earlier versions of Firefox. Response from Web host: I've seen the same thing in Firefox 2.0. It doesn't occur initially, but develops after FF2 has been running awhile. I cured it by tweaking one of the "hidden" prefs using about:config: security.enable_ssl2 = true I suspect it's a bug in Firefox, or at least a mistake in the default preference settings. FF2 is full of bugs. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to Web site 2. 3. Actual Results: "site uses a security protocol which is not enabled." Expected Results: Opened the Web site.
Umm.. SSL2 is disabled because it is the one with security bugs. Inform the admin of the site to update to SSL3. Resolve this as invalid.
Well, while enabling SSL2 is no fix, perhaps we could look at why it's only a sometimes thing (I loaded all but two images successfully before I started getting SSL2 warnings) before we start saying it's not us, it's them?

No problems observed with Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20061102 SeaMonkey/1.5a. The home page and 2nd link on the homepage are https, but the others I tried are all http. The page info says the security used is AES-256 256-bit encryption.
I can not reproduce. Do you see this bug on Apple, on Windows, or both? Do you really see it with https://www.lakewoodranchmedicalcenter.com/ - or rather with a link you click on that site?
I saw it with a Mac trunk build a couple of days old, over a dialup connection, just loading the site's home page, and haven't been able to reproduce with a Windows Fx 2 build on a decent connection, no matter how much I poke around the site. Assuming I can reproduce at will with a crappy connection, are there logging instructions somewhere I can use to see what's happening when it decides to switch?
