Edit > Preferences... > Privacy & Security > SSL > Help :
"You should normally leave these three checkboxes selected [...]"

There are 2 checkboxes only: 'SSL 3' and 'TLS'.

It looks like 'SSL Protocol Versions' help was not updated when SSL 2.0 support was removed.

***

Moreover, I assume this help is a little misleading:
I assume fallback from TLS (1.0) to SSL 3.0 happens only if both are enabled...

Kai, could you confirm how (PSM+)NSS actually behaves?

Kai, ping? If you cannot confirm either way, maybe you can provide us with a test case?
SSL 2 should no longer be mentioned in the help instructions.

Yeah, but the question was wrt to TLS<->SSL setting dependence (or not).

He, yes, we agree there. :-)

The question was not regarding the summary of this bug but regarding comment 1: Does TLS (security.enable_tls = true) fall back to SSL 3 if SSL 3 is not enabled through preferences (security.enable_ssl3 = false)?
If SSL 3 is disabled, we will not fall back to SSL 3.
