How to Enable SSL2 in Firefox

The SSL 2 protocol enables channel security for online transmissions between a client (for example, a web browser) and a web server. The channel uses encryption to establish privacy, authentication to confirm the identity of participants and integrity checking features to ensure the reliability of messages

As of Firefox 2.0, SSL2 was disabled as a default. This is required for many sites when trying to login. If you notice that your entry of a username and password results the page being refreshed, your Firefox browser most likely has SSL2 disabled. Here is a quick article on enabling SSL2.

Steps To Follow
  • Press "Enter" on your keyboard when you have done so.
  • When you go into Firefox's configuration, you will have this prompt. 
  • You can uncheck the box and click on the "I'll be careful, I promise!" button.

  • At the top of the list, there is a filter for searching a specific setting.
  • In the filter box, type: ssl2. You will soon have the list shortened to show only items pertaining to SSL2

  • Double-click on each item listed. This will make the listed content bold and enabled. The changes are applied instantly upon double-clicking on the SSL2 settings.

  • Once you have done so, you can close the tab.
