Where do I find my Transport Layer Security 1.1 or higher designation?
On May 31, 2018, Umpqua Bank will be upgrading online security and will require the use of operating systems and browsers that support a higher level of encryption protocol (Transport Layer Security 1.1 or higher.
I currently am running Firefox Quantum 60.0.1 (64-bit)
Where would I find this information on my browser support files? Can you advise if this version is compliant with my bank's requirements?

Firefox supports all versions of TLS. It should be good to go.
Thanks Tyler, that somewhat answers my question. The banks announcement implied that there are versions of TLS. It asked specifically about 1.1 or higher. I assume there may be revisions and differing version numbers in the future. Is there a listing of support protocols for Firefox anywhere in my options/support menus? Appreciate your help and please bear (bare) with me if I ask asinine questions. Paul
There are multiple versions of TLS. Hopefully your bank is using 1.2 or 1.3, both of which Firefox supports.
You can view what Firefox supports by testing your browser at https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/viewMyClient.html
Firefox has supported TLS 1.2 by default since Firefox 27.0 Release (Feb 4, 2014) as per Bug#861266.
From Firefox 60 Release Notes:
On-by-default support for draft-23 of the TLS 1.3 specification
There are TLS settings prefs on the about:config page that specify the minimum and maximum TLS version.
- security.tls.version.min = 1
- security.tls.version.max = 4
1 means TLS 1.0 2 means TLS 1.1 3 means TLS 1.2 (default as of 27 to 59 Releases) 4 means TLS 1.3 (default as of Fx 60.0)
