I have been using Firefox for a long time as my browser and typically play Pandora while at my office most days. For the first time today I received a pop up message "Pandora believes your browser does not support modern SSL/TLS. Consider upgrading your browswer" when I logged on to Pandora. I checked and I am on the latest version of Mozilla Firefox. I am unable to control volume or log out of Pandora now. I did some google searches and found Mozilla disabled ssl3.0 due to a "Poodle" attack. Does that mean that I can no longer use Firefox as my browser when I want to listen to music on Pandora or is there "a fix"? Thanks!

Mozilla Firefox as of Firefox 34 has the vulnerable SSL 3.0 disabled and only allows for TLS 1.0 at minimum to 1.2 now.

So Pandora is incorrect if they believe Firefox is not safe to use.

Actually Pandora potentially needs to do a bit of upgrading themselves. https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=www.pandora.com&s=208.85.40.50
