Can't access some blogs, after disabling RC4 and AES-128

First, this is no security issue as stated in that Security FAQ, since it does not involve instructions to "hack" a blog.

Steps to reproduce:

Follow the tipps by Martin Grässlin as stated here:

that is, disabling RC4 and AES-128 keys in Firefox' about:config (Fx v26-v28). The problem occurs on Sabayon Linux 64Bit and Ubuntu.

$ uname -a
Linux linux.local 3.13.0-sabayon #1 SMP Sun Mar 16 03:29:10 UTC 2014 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P8600 @ 2.40GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

Expected behaviour delivers content with higher encryption transport activated.

Actual behaviour

Some blogs aren't reachable anymore. Surfing on them raises an page load error (Connection refused).
A reset to default values does not fix the issue. Only blogs are affected. However, after upgrading Firefox to v28 I can reach at least some blogs again.
I've already cleared cache and cookies with no effect.
