Site begins by running Javascript, says unsupported browser.

I see a whole page full of Javascript with no HTML.  This is the displayed text:

 Sorry! You cannot view the main Otto & Iris experience. requires Internet Explorer version 4.0 (or higher), Netscape
version 4.06 (or higher), or a version of AOL 3.0 (or higher) that incorporates
Internet Explorer 4.0 or higher.

Also, we do not currently support Netscape 6.0.

Please accept our apologies! We hope you can visit us again soon with a
different browser.

Maybe I made a mistake and Moz is the same as Netscape 6.0.  The javascript and
why they don't support Netscape 6.0 may be interesting, though,  Feel free to
invalidate this bug if you're not interested.

Mozilla (and Mozilla Developers) can do nothing about being rejected.

It would be VERY handy to be able to set a per-site User-Agent string.
Plenty of places (my pet peeve is my internet banking facility)
do a per-browser-ok check instead of a per-browser-not-ok check.
Being able to lie to such sites (especially with a short like of standard
User-Agent strings for particular browsers) would be very useful when Mozilla
has the function but the site doesn't believe it.

Cameron: the "general.useragent.override" pref still works I believe.
