Attempting to fill out the fafsa form results in an error stating browser is unsupported.

Choose any type of Fafsa and continue Actual Results: Listing of supported browsers appears Expected Results: Ability to fill out fafsa form.
They certify browsers quarterly and have fairly strict requirements considering the type of information contained in a FAFSA. I have contacted them but recommend that you install Netscape 6.2.1 if at all possible.
