I have various accounts with them too.  What happens is that, if
their cookie has expired or been purged, they tell you that you
need Netscape or IE.  But they also allow you to click on a
button to go ahead and try anyway and they allow you to tick a
box to avoid being reminded about this next time.

Once you then go ahead with mozilla or galeon or opera, all
works as it should.  Better than the CBA, which has print
functions that crash galeon and mozilla.

Cheers, Greg
