User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; fr; rv:1.9.1.2) Gecko/20090803 Fedora/3.5.2-2.fc11 Firefox/3.5.2
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; fr; rv:1.9.1.2) Gecko/20090803 Fedora/3.5.2-2.fc11 Firefox/3.5.2

The sentence "Impossible de communiquer en mode sécurisé avec le pair : aucun algorithme de chiffrement courant." has been translated from "Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common encryption algorithm(s)."

The problem is the translation of the word "common". It has been translated as in "computers are very common nowadays", instead of "you and me have a lot in common". In French, those two different meanings of "common" are in fact two different words, leading to a nonsense if the wrong one is used, which is unfortunately the case.

It should be something like "aucun algorithme de chiffrement en commun", instead of "aucun algorithme de chiffrement courant".

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to negotiate an SSL session with a server configured in a way that there's no algorithm in common with your client.
2. Read the error message in French, wonder what it means, translate it back to English, understand it.

Alternatively, there must be some chrome:// URL to get directly to the internal Firefox message.
Actual Results:  
Échec de la connexion sécurisée
