Description

Today, it seems that if the client and the server don't have ciphers in common,
the client says "SSL is turned off".  This isn't accurate.

Mass reassign ssaux bugs to nobody
Assignee: ssaux → nobody
Mass change "Future" target milestone to "--" on bugs that now are assigned to
nobody.  Those targets reflected the prioritization of past PSM management.
Many of these should be marked invalid or wontfix, I think.
Target Milestone: Future → ---

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to test-server:9101.

Can't connect securely because the site uses an older, insecure version of the SSL protocol.

(Error code: ssl_error_ssl2_disabled)

The page you are trying to view can not be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

    * Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem.
