Same cipher suites but different order

I would like to use the cipher suites that CloudFlare uses which is:




However the test results are a bit different. Compare:




Firstly the cipher order is a bit different.

For Cloudflare, TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA and TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA are stated under "Suites used only for BEAST mitigation (TLS 1.0 and earlier)".

While my server, the two above ciphers are in order 2 and 5.


Secondly, the handshake simulation is different for Safari 6 and 7 that uses TLS 1.2.

CloudFlare uses TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA while my server uses TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA.


My web server is running LiteSpeed. Could that be the cause of this difference?
