Didn't you recently start a very similar thread with an EOL fedora version?
You need to learn to keep your OSs up-to-date.

Yes, your browser version could be outdated. tls versions < 1.1 are deprecated and both servers and browsers are starting to disable support for them. Since more sites automatically redirect to using https if your browser isn't capable of tls your going to see that error.

It's not a Microsoft conspiracy.

tls is just an updated version of ssl. I don't know maybe check what libraries your version is using?

In this instance as vulnerabilities are found new versions are released and the old old deprecated. To protect the user websites are only using https now days. If your browser isn't updated it will not be able to access them.

Now day it is expected that websites protect your personal information and are secured.

The web has always been free and useable...
