Due to recent SSL vulnerabilities, it's a good idea to fully protect yourself. In this article, we will show you how to disable SSL 3.0 in Firefox to protect you against the recent POODLE vulnerability.

Disabling SSL 3.0 via a plugin in Firefox

To disable SSL 3.0 in Firefox, a plugin has been created by the developers at Mozilla to completely disable SSL 3.0. Simply visit the SSL Version Control plugin page and click Add to Firefox. While the plugin does not need a restart to become active, it's a good idea to fully restart Firefox so that all HTTPS connections are restarted.

Manually disabling SSL 3.0 in Firefox

  1. In the Firefox address bar, enter about:config

  2. Confirm the warning and continue.

  3. In the search box up top, enter security.tls.version.min

  4. Right-click the entry for security.tls.version.min, click Modify, and change the value to 1

  5. Once the change is made, restart Firefox.
