radi.stoyanov said Turns out the option DNS over HTTPS is what caused the problem.

jamesafuf123 said my ISP was blocking sites like that

cor-el said This usually means that Firefox wasn't able to find a cipher suites to use to connect to this server and reached the end of the list. There can be two possibilities: one is that the server is outdated and doesn't support modern cipher suites, another might be that the server only supports a few cipher suites and Firefox doesn't support any of these.

You can check your browser and possibly compare this with the server setup.

Hi, the site works for me although it takes some times to connect and load the page. I see a few times a flashing "Performing TSL handshake" status message at the bottom of the page.

A test with Qualys takes a lot of time as well and the initial test for supported SSL adn TLS already takes a few minutes and the test fails likely because this, so this server isn't really fast and you can try again.

You can reload web page(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.
