Comment (by elrond):

 That connection display function looks nice!

 Possible reasons, why NSS did not yet change its default:
 * Some webservers are broken when contacted with tls1.2. Browsers usually
 try to downgrade then for the next connect. So maybe NSS wanted to stay
 more compatible?
 * Stay more compatible in general with old applications expect? Like "If
 you programmed your application with an old version, a new version will
 still use the exact same bytes on the wire"

 Truth is: I don't know, why they did not yet upgrade the defaults. One
 might ask them.
