When going to I now get a grey triangle in the address bar. This only happened since FF 36.0. Same problem exists on FF 36.0 and 36.0.1 for Kindle/Android. IE no problem. I uninstalled FF and reinstalled FF 35.0.1 and all is OK, upgraded to 36.0.1 and problem exists. Tried FF 37 Beta same problem. All other https websites I use work fine. I hope a remedy can be found as I have been a FF user since initial beta days. Thanks!

hi MJ_Lind, this is no bug in the browser - the site you have mentioned only offers weak TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA encryption making use of the RC4 cipher suite which is considered broken and no longer trustworthy. according to this recent proposal browsers have to stop supporting RC4:

starting with firefox 38, the browser will show an error message and totally block access to affected sites, so please contact the webmasters of the site and inform them about this issue...
