*** Bug 174509 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Just mailed to the webmaster. Wait and see.
They are open and ready to add a patch. I'm trying to make one. Note: this bug is followed by the AFUL (french association for free software) too.
Quote from bug 111001 : "The software used on the server side is written by a french company, Suadela. getting in touch with them (namely Fred). ... Got in touch with Suadela. The tech contact is Frederic de Badereau <firstname.lastname@example.org> Fred knows about this bugzilla bug report and will have a look." Perhaps this person should be contacted too

Note that the webmaster answered me that they are thinking to a new version and aware of the problem. Two ways to fix are better than one. :-) They have understood that the AFUL or the evangelists can help too.
Problem still not solved... I will write to the webmaster
*sigh* Got an answer from the "customer support" saying that they will do nothing. But (I guess) the answer was made from someone who does not understand the problem... It is not even written in good french: "Nous faisons suite à votre mail de ce jour concernant le navigateur Modzilla enpêchant la visite de notre site www.carrefourmultimedia.com. Nous sommes conscients du manque à gagner que cela peut impliquer, mais il n'est toujours prévu à ce jour de permettre les utilisateurs de Modzilla de visiter notre site." Let's wait for a technical answer from the webmaster.
Created attachment 120678 [details] [diff] [review] patch this patch (although Bad: sniffs name too) against wget http://www.carrefour-multimedia.com/Includes/js/versionning.js would at least work for all Mozilla/5.0 compatible browsers and take less than 2 minutes to apply. the site works fine when accessed directly from http://www.carrefour-multimedia.com/data/fr/accueil/index.asp
Mail after mail, I'm in relation with the internet responsable of the group. A new site is preparing and will support more browsers. But I wil send the patch to him, of course.
assigning to Fabrice since he/she is doing the contacting. accept the assignment if this is okay with you.
