According to their faq http://www.zurichbank.co.uk/homesuite/q_security.html ,
Netscape 6.x is supported (minus 6.0), thus Mozilla should be no problem if it
is correctly detected.

https://secure.zurichbank.co.uk 'redirects' to
https://secure.zurichbank.co.uk/cgi-bin/common/fortecgi?ServiceName=ZFSPortalHTTPAccessSO&TemplateName=vputpl/common/autologon.tmpl

clearly it doesn't detect Gecko correctly, since Konqueror needs to masquerade,
so presumably Mozilla trunk (2002082320 my build) would need to as well

Netscape 7 pr 1 doesn't get detected properly either

perhaps their faq refers to http://www not https://secure ?
can anyone test with mozilla identified as something else, see if everything
works ? if so, this bug should be marked as [havefix], since that would mean
they only need to sniff better...
