Mozilla (the browser) uses a trick to be able to connect to
those servers as well. Firstly tries connecting with TLS1.0 and
SSL3.0 enabled, if that fails tries connecting with plain SSL 3.0.

This is obviously vulnerable to version downgrade attacks, but it
works with all of the broken servers out there.
