If you visit the location above, and click the link marked "Click here for your free 7 day trial", the site gives the following erroneous error: "Welcome to Hemscott's Premium Site. In order to access this site please upgrade your browser to IE4 or Higher." [This occurs on both W98 and Linux] I've already aked the webmaster to fix this and been told "sorry we only support IE". So perhaps you can have better luck! After all, Mozilla is Higher than IE4 :-) And it doesn't need "supporting" - all they need to do is stop doing server-side blocking. Thanks a lot. Richard

Unfortunately, they are still doing it. If you go to the main page: http://www.hemscott.com/ and then click on the circled 'P' icon in the top left, you get this URL: http://miranda.hemscott.com/servlet/HsPublic?context=premium.home&path=premium&service=home which then redirects to: http://miranda.hemscott.com/premium/notie.htm Sorry to disappoint you!

Sorry Richard, but I can login and access info fine. Premium doesn't redirect for me.
That's very odd! I find that firefox is OK, but Mozilla 1.73 is not OK. Konqueror is also blocked.
They are whitelisting browsers and include IE and Firefox (at least) but excluding other Gecko browsers. Confirmed by using a Mozilla UA String in Firefox.

I've just checked Premium with Firefox, Mozilla and Opera and they can all get in fine. -> FIXED?
Yes, thank you very much. I'll mark this as FIXED. Seems that their webmaster finally got a clue :-)
