I can't access the Kroger website. It says I need Technobabble: TLS 1.2, and that my browser is out of date. My browser is up-to-date, so how do I fix this?
I cannot access the Kroger website. When I try, I get a message saying my browser is out of date. It isn't.This is what I get:

Hi jadamirada, could you check whether some of your Firefox settings have been customized:
(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.
(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste TLS and pause while the list is filtered
Do any of the preferences starting with security.tls have a non-default value (bolded and indicates "modified")? To restore a setting back to its default, right-click the setting and choose Reset.
(3) In the search box above the list, type or paste SSL3 and pause while the list is filtered
Firefox should display about 15 lines starting with security.ssl3
If any of the preferences is bolded and "modified" to false, double-click it to restore the default value of true EXCEPT
You can block these two to improve your security (double-click to switch them from true to false):
(Assuming the Preference column is alphabetical, these usually would be at the top. They are related to the Logjam vulnerability.)
Does that change anything?
Thank you, jscher, but none of the settings have been modified.
On Kroger, what page do you end up on when you see that message? Can you copy the address from the address bar and paste it here?
Do you know whether your browsing connections are made through an intermediary such as a security software filter, a proxy server, a private VPN service, a peer-to-peer network such as Hola, or Tor? It's possible the intermediary is not using the best security settings.
Sometimes you can recognize an intermediary by a changed certificate. If you visit my test page here --
-- will Firefox connect? You can call up the certificate viewer using any of these methods:
- right-click (on Mac Ctrl+click) a blank area of the page and choose View Page Info > Security > "View Certificate"
- (menu bar) Tools > Page Info > Security > "View Certificate"
- click the padlock or "i" icon in the address bar, then the ">" button, then More Information, and finally the "View Certificate" button
I have posted a screenshot for comparison. What do you have in the "Issued by" area?
Here is the url for the Kroger page where I first got the message
I get the same message, though, no matter where I try to connect with the Kroger website.
Okay, I followed your instructions and made it to the 'view certificate' page, and it says it was issued by ESET SSL Filter CA
Thank you so much for your help. I am practically computer illiterate. I think "ESET" has something to do with my security.
