How to force use of 256-bit AES for secure web

Mozilla Firefox (v3):

  1. Type “about:config” in the address bar to open up the detailed list of configuration parameters.
  2. Make sure that “secuity.enable_ssl2″ is “false” and “security.enable_ssl3″ and security.enable_tls” are “true”.
  3. Search for “security.ssl3″
  4. Change to “false” the value for all ciphers that do not include “aes_256″ in the name.  This will make them no longer available for use.
  5. You will be left with various versions of AES 256 in SSL v3 or TLS.
  6. You don’t even have to restart Firefox for this to take effect!
