How to Fix SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP on Firefox

What causes the error code ‘SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP’?
Like mentioned before, this error code occurs when in most cases, the server fails to provide proper security mechanism or protocols to the request of the browser, hence, the web page fails to load. However, there are some other reasons as well such as:

Firefox is not updated to the latest version which causes issues when surfing the internet.
SSL3 is disabled on the web browser. Furthermore, TLS can also be disabled which cause the error message.
RC4 support has been completely removed from Firefox and if the website is passing it as a parameter, this error will be prompted.
Before moving to the solutions, make sure that you have administrator privileges and you have a stable internet connection.

Interesting. We have the same version of FF. (I downloaded the latest V81 this morning). Must be down to different parameter settings. These are my ssl3 & tls settings:

The BT email was once again sent to the Gmail spam file so I've set up two filters one for [email protected] and the other for [email protected]

In summary these are the details of the "new" package:
Contract is for: 24 months
Estimated download speed: 29 - 36Mbps
Estimated upload speed: 6 - 9 Mbps
Stay Fast download speed is: 23Mbps
700 minutes a month for calls from your landline to UK landlines and UK mobiles.
Calls to service numbers starting with 084, 087, 09 and 118 come with an access charge plus a service charge set by the company you call.

Ongoing charges
700 minutes of calls to any UK landline number or UK mobile, anytime. £7.00
Broadband and Landline £35.99
Special offer discount lasts for 24 months -£8.00
Total ongoing charges £34.99

The same package as I had before but at half the price. A financial bonus for threatening to be disloyal.

That's how everything works now, utilities, phone, insurance, vehicle recovery, etc.. Loyalty counts for nothing.

In fact, loyal customers who keep paying are fleeced.

Well done for squeezing this package from BT. Mine with PN does not include mobile calls but is otherwise identical and costs £31.50pm on 12-month contract.

You stated that you've been with BT since the eighties. We switched from BT to Utility Warehouse in 2013 and prior to that the evening and weekend calls were free if you registered with something in BT. No cost involved.

Can't remember what we had to register with. Obviously things change with time but paying way over the odds for anything is not good.

Was Eclipse Home Option 1, VM 2Mb & O2 Standard
Now Utility Warehouse (up to 16mbps) via Talk Talk

Looks like the FCA are trying to ban the practice for insurance.

I believe Ofcom are pushing it with ISPs as well so that they don't just keep customers forever on overpriced packages.

But, it is at present incumbent on the bill payer to shop around or to ring their current suppliers periodically to get better deals.

As I could not get image hosting to work, thought I'd try google drive, with a Gmail account I rarely use. Will someone let me know if this works? If it does I'll add the complete set of links. Thanks.
