SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP Your server apparently doesn't offer any cipher suites necessary to establish a secure https connection that are supported in Firefox. You can check what kind of cipher suites Firefox can make use of by visiting https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/viewMyClient.html

Your Firefox 13 version likely only supports some old cipher suites and obsolete TLS versions.

You can use the Firefox 45.9.0 esr version on your Mac OS X 10.6 version.
