My original post about turning sslv3 back on is not valid in Firefox V40. The only way I could find around this is to try the following:
- Install the SSL Version control plugin into your current browser
- Install a old portable edition of firefox from here. The SSL poodle bug was issues in Oct 2014, so its safe to use any earlier edition. I’ve been using v30 which was released on 2014-06-10.
When you install the portable edition, it installs a copy in the folder “FirefoxPortable” on your desktop. You need to close your main browser before firing up this version. There is no interaction between the two version so you can delete and reinstall the portable edition as many times as you like.
