@Dan 55 - Re: eBay?

I don't understand why would someone down-vote your post.

I had the same kind of surprise when FF 38 locked me out of the admin GUI of my Linksys home router/firewall as soon as I checked the "use HTTPS" box. The settings you mention were simply not working and I had to download FF v6 in order to be able to get back using plain HTTP to administer my firewall. Thanks to the cleverness of Mozilla devs, I am now using no encryption at all instead of some vulnerable one. Of course I'll have to buy a new device but the radical measure taken by Firefox bothered me a lot.
