Firewall seems to be blocking amazon and parts of Discord

When I try to access Amazon or Discord, I get this error message: 

"This site can’t provide a secure connection

www.amazon.co.uk uses an unsupported protocol.

ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH"
 
This is on all types of devices - PC, laptop, phones - I have tried factory re-setting the router. I have tried clearing the SSL state on  my PC. The only thing that has worked is switching off the Firewall. I've phoned Tech support many, many times to get to this point. However, I am reluctant to switch off my Firewall - although Tech Support said it would be fine to do that. 
 
Surely the Firewall should not be preventing Amazon getting through? It's now started with Discord as well. I've  been using Amazon using data on my phone but that's just not feasible for Discord. 
 
Any ideas?

@Mangoyeti First of all, thank you for raising the issue: it made me look at my Firewall setting and it wasn't on. So I set it to High and nothing I've tried gets blocked. Amazon works fine, so I am sorry I cannot help. FWIW I must have turned it off ages ago and nothing untoward has happened.
