Does SM 2.49.3 meet the new PCI Security Standard (PCI DSS) cited below?

PayPal asks me to upgrade my browser. I followed the primrose path and there was no SM route.

Update Required: Before June 30, 2018 PayPal is requiring all customers to update their desktop and mobile browsers to remain compliant with new security standards. You will not be able to access PayPal.com after June 30th if your browser isn’t updated. Updating your browser is a quick process. Learn how to upgrade your browser.

How do I check and update my web browser?

To meet the new PCI Security Standard (PCI DSS) required by all websites that hold payment data, PayPal will no longer support outdated web browsers. You may need to update your browser to continue accessing PayPal. Please follow the steps below to update your desktop and mobile browsers.

Instructions to update desktop browsers
Please visit our sandbox site from each of your browsers. If the page loads, you are already upgraded. If the page doesn't appear, please follow the steps below:

Identify your current browser version
Confirm recommended desktop operating system and browsers
Update your desktop browser

The sandbox site link is:

http://sandbox.paypal.com/

I get to PayPal but it will not let me log in.
Thanks,

Baumgrenze

Yes, it already uses TLS v1.2

It didn't ask you to login, it asked if the sandbox page loads and it does.

Sandbox sites are not real or fully functional sites.

Firefox has TLS 1.2 enabled by default since Firefox 27.0 Release (Feb 4, 2014) (or Gecko 27.0) as per Bug#861266. Firefox 60.0 (Gecko 60.0) has TLS 1.3 enabled by default as mentioned in Release notes.

There are TLS settings prefs on the about:config page that specify the minimum and maximum TLS version.

security.tls.version.min = 1
security.tls.version.max = 4
1 means TLS 1.0
2 means TLS 1.1
3 means TLS 1.2 (default in 59 and earlier)
4 means TLS 1.3 (default as of Fx 60.0)

Thanks for the replies.

Unfortunately, I can use my login/PW to PayPal with Chrome and the page opens. When I try with the latest SM it fails.

Is there an explanation for this?
Thanks,

Baumgrenze

Why are you trying to log-in to Sandbox? Are you application developer? Do you need to test something?

Try regular PayPal website:

We are drifting rapidly off-topic from SeaMonkey Support now.

If there is an explanation, you'll find it on this site - https://www.paypal-community.com/t5/San ... 84926#M733
