Obviously I overlooked the version number "V20" you mentioned. I thought 
it was the other way, i.e. that the current firefox version demands a 
certain ssl version which the website doesn't yet support. Version 20 is 
really an ancient version - it looks like you are still running Ubuntu 
10.04. As firefox seems to use it's own ssl code, I'm quite sure that 
you can't upgrade the ssl code alone.
