Considered bad popup
Authored by: vonleigh on Dec 19, '02 06:57:04PM

Hello,

I tried this (I also use citibank) and it didn't work for me. I then disabled the blocking of "unwanted" popups and it did work. So for some reason this page is considered to have an unwanted popup.

Also, this _does_ work with mozilla and is a recognized browser. I'd much prefer to masquerade as a Mozilla browser, how would I go about that?

Fire up Mozilla, and go to the "Mozilla About:" screen. It will give you the UserAgent string, and then follow the same instructions for this "hint" - instead of using the IE string use the Mozilla one.

I did that - and then replaced the string on my Windows box, so when I surf at work - it looks to websites like I am running Mozilla on a Mac OSX box...
