    Hi,

    Error message below:

    Alert
    Firefox can't connect securely to my3.three.co.uk becuase the site uses an older, insecure version of the SSL protocol.


    What is the solution? what setting do I need to change to sort this out?

    Thanks

    If you have Firefox 2 or above:
    Type about:config in the address bar and hit Enter.
    Scroll down to security.enable_ssl2 and double click the line to
    change from false to true. Close Firefox and try the site again.

    type about:config into your browser, once there in the Filter box type ssl2 you'll see a series of entries double click on each one to set the value to "true" restart your browser and try your site.

    Starting in Firefox 2, support for SSL version 2.0 was disabled by default, you still have SSL 3.0 in Firefox.
    Check Tools> Options> Advanced tab> Encryption tab. You should still have Use SSL 3.0 checked.
