I've tried back and forth with Opera (version 11.50/1074 here).
>From "about:config" with the search terms "tls" and "ssl" and
through Tools -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Security... I just
keep getting this "helpful" message:


	Could not connect to remote server
	Check that the address is spelled correctly,
	or try searching for the site.

Do I have to manually install some certificates, manually add
a CA, or maybe disable one? Is there a known combination of
settings that will work?

	Certificate revocation lists for ssl
	Crypto Method Overrides
	Enable SSL v3
	Enable TLS v1.0
	Enable TLS v1.1
	Enable TLS v1.2
	Minimum Security Level
	OCSP Validate Certificates
	Strict EV Mode

I think those are the relevant settings. But how to actually
set them so the FreeBSD forum will be pleased? :-)
