I'm trying to do some online shopping, and I see the green padlock on my screen and everything, but I'm still not sure if I have a secure internet connection. The following is what Firefox says the encryption is.

(TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA, 128 bit keys)

Note that some ciphers have been disabled that have security issues in current Firefox releases.

The System Details list shows that you use an old Firefox 30 version that is no longer supported with security updates.

  • It is important to update Firefox and add-ons to the latest version to get all security fixes.

Please update to the current Firefox 38 release.
