Quickbooks accounting system block Mozilla. I am unable to use Mozilla or
Netscape 7 at work because of this. After loging in, I see this:

Jeremy, 

I can reach the login page if I use IE6 ua string. Can you spoof your user agent
string to be IE6 and see what the issues are with their content? You can use
http://uabar.mozdev.org/source.html or
http://mozilla-evangelism.bclary.com/sidebars/ to switch your user agent.

In particular, do they use ActiveX anywhere in their content? If so, what are
the names of the controls?

As a customer, can you send them a note asking about support for Netscape 7,
Mozilla and other Gecko based browsers? Please tell them you have contacts with
Netscape if they would like to discuss the situation with us.

If you can obtain an email contact and send it to me or Arun, that would help a
great deal.

Feedback from customers is the greatest influence we have with vendors. Thanks!

I spoofed a IE5 agent. Turns out their piece of shit site is one big ActiveX
control. So much for Mozilla. I will see who I can contact there. None of the
site is anything HTML+JS can't do.

GOD! Why do idiots make platform specific web applications? What in the hell is
the point.

Severity -> Normal for Evangelism.  (Critical should only be used if Mozilla
itself is crashing.)
Severity: critical → normal
