Issue #411 has been updated by lukeshu.

I'm all for encouraging privacy, and being on the bleeding edge, but I think this is a bad idea.  From this standpoint, the Mozilla people know what they're doing.  If they chose to not enable it by default, they had a good reason for it.  We want to trust some blog post instead of the collective knowledge of all the cryptogophers at Mozilla?

> Firefox 23 supports TLS/1.1... finally!!
> 7 August 2013, 14:40
> Mozilla finally decided to include TLS/1.1 support in Firefox. However, most users won't benefit from this support, because it's  disabled by default and enabling is not many people will and can do. To enable TLS/1.1 support, use "about:config" in the URL bar and search for the security.tls.version.max setting. Set its value to 2 (default is 1).
