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

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.

That is a problem of your browser/openSSL library, not

Older TLS versions have long been deprecated and now disabled. Payment
providers around the world have been busy notifying customers that
their browsers are outdated and no longer supported.

First I don't really get why looking at a mailing list page requires
an https connection at all.

That is a Google preference thing. I agree with you, but Google gives
preference to encrypted sites.

I can imagine that some want secure connection to the mailing list
site but automatic redirection should not occur.

Hmm, you may have a point. Only redirecting for Google is a problem

Third, many https site just work with this old firefox.

Sure, they're also using outdated TLS. doesn't open either. works.
This should be fixed.

The only likely fix is that will be upgraded
to only use TLS v1.2 too.
