[opensuse] opensuse mailing list site ridiculousness

I tried to open openSUSE mailing lists in an older firefox, 24.8.1 ESR at

which redirects to

and the browser can't open the page, instead give an error message:

"The connection was interrupted

The connection to was interrupted while the page was loading.

The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web."

I guess the problem might be an authentication/key/certificate error. (Newer seamonkey can open the page).

First I don't really get why looking at a mailing list page requires an https connection at all.
I can imagine that some want secure connection to the mailing list site but automatic redirection
should not occur.
Third, many https site just work with this old firefox. doesn't open either. works.

This should be fixed.
