In order to change your Firefox Configuration please do the following steps :

  1. In the Location bar, type about:config and press Enter. The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page may appear.

Note that the DHE cipher suites were disabled for a reason and re-enabling them will make you vulnerable for the Logjam attack. You can consider to use a separate profile with the two involved cipher suites enabled and use that profile for accessing the blocked sites.
