Mozilla Firefox Settings

In Mozilla Firefox, SSL v3 is disabled by default. Therefore, all you need to do before engaging Firefox as your browser for the eG manager is to enable TLS 1.1 or TLS 1.2. For this, follow the steps below:

  1. Launch the Mozilla Firefox browser.
  2. In the Search bar of the browser, type about:config.

  3. The warning message depicted by Figure 1 will then appear.

  4. Click the I’ll be careful, I promise! button in Figure 2. Figure 3 will appear. Here, select the security.tls.version.min preference.
