User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021104 Chimera/0.6
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021104 Chimera/0.6

"Accessing you account" panel shows up before user name and password are even
entered. Entering user name and password, then hitting "enter", does nothing.
Have tried in both Chimera and Mozilla. Access continues to work fine in my IE
5.2.2. Tried changing security prefs, but no difference.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to URL
2. Attempt login
3. Reload

Actual Results:  
Dead end. I can't access my account, or get a correctly-loaded login page.

Expected Results:  
Loaded login page, then gone to "Accessing your account" page after user name
and password are entered.

Matthew:
Did it work in Mozilla or not?

The page referenced makes extensive use of layers in an attempt to control what
parts of the page are visible and active at any time. In particular, when the
Sign On button is clicked, the following JavaScript function is called rather
than the form being immediately submitted to the server:

function PleaseWaitSubmit(a_form) {
	document.layers["EntirePage"].visibility="hidden";
	document.layers["PushPage"].visibility="visible";
	document.layers["EntirePage"].document.forms[a_form].submit();
	animate ();

Unfortunely, layers are not a part of any web standard and are not supported by
Netscape 6/7 or any Mozilla-based browsers. (The functionality of layers has
been superceeded by CSS.) What's most likely going on is that the web server is
detecting Netscape (incorrectly) and feeding the browser a page designed for
Netscape 4 (which did support layers).

The webmasters of this site need to update the page to be standards-compliant.
In the meantime, you can work around the problem by saving the page to your hard
drive, editing the above JavaScript function to remove everything except
"document.forms[a_form].submit();", and loading the local version of the page in
Chimera. Changing Product to Tech Evangelism and updating Summary.
