Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to GameSpot. 2. Click a link. 3. Find that the content to which the link points requires a subscription. Actual Results: alert("Netscape Navigator is not currently supported by GameSpot Complete. We are working to remedy this situation, and we apologize for any inconvenience it may cause. In the meantime, please sign up using a different browser."); After the user presses OK, the form loads. I have not tried clicking Submit because I do not wish to purchase a GameSpot Complete subscription at this time. Expected Results: GameSpot Complete doesn't complain about the presence of Mozilla. As the alert box said, GameSpot claims to be working on the problem. Possible actual scenarios: 1. The developers have encountered problems bringing GameSpot Complete up to web standards. 2. The developers have forgotten about the project to bring GameSpot Complete up to web standards. 3. GameSpot is lying.

This is no longer any problem. Reporter can you verify?
The Basic signup form does not present a warning alert, but I still get a warning alert when viewing the Complete signup form. ( http://www.gamespot.com/gamespot/misc/complete/signup2.html ) The text of the warning has changed to the following: Due to Netscape Navigator's handling of cookies, Netscape users may have difficulty logging in or out of GameSpot Complete. We recommend that you use Internet Explorer when logging in and out of GameSpot Complete. I am using a month-old Mozilla build for Windows; is this the problem?
I get the same warning on build 20030818.
Summary: GameSpot Complete does not support "Netscape" (i.e. Gecko based) browsers → GameSpot Complete does not support cookie handling of "Netscape" (i.e. Gecko based) browsers
I dont get any warning on the page mentioned in comment 3, can anyone verify?
No more warning (Mozilla build 2003120808, Windows 2000). Confirmation from users of Linux or Mac OS X?
