the national  fruit commity web site blocks mozilla based browsers, and
redirects them to a pages telling them to download explorer 4 or above.

From the code of the main page:

<script language="javascript">
outStr = '';
myBrowser = navigator.appVersion;
browser = navigator.appName;

// get rid of all 2.0 and 3.0 browsers
if ((myBrowser.indexOf("3") == 0) || (myBrowser.indexOf("2") == 0)) {
	location.href = "no_flash.html";

// person has N4.04 (JS dll bug)
if ((browser.indexOf("Netscape") != -1) && (myBrowser.indexOf("4.04") == 0)) {
	location.href = "no_net.html";

// Attributes Detector Script. (c) 1999 ModemMediaPoppeTyson, LP
// Check for the following client capabilities:
// - Flash (via Netscape plugin)

function detectPlugin(plugType,plugName) {
	// detectPlugin Version 2.2
	// (c)1999 MM.PT
	retStr = "no";
	browser = navigator.appName;
	version = (navigator.appVersion + "3").charAt(0);
	if ((browser.indexOf("Netscape") != -1) && version >= 3) {
				location.href = "no_net.html";
		mimeOK = 0;
		pluginOK = 0;
		for (i = 0; i < navigator.mimeTypes.length; i++) {
			mimetype = navigator.mimeTypes[i];
			if (mimetype.type == plugType) {
				mimeOK = 1;
		for (i = 0; i < navigator.plugins.length; i++) {
			plugin = navigator.plugins[i];
			if (plugin.description.indexOf(plugName) != -1) {
				pluginOK = 1;
		if (mimeOK == 1 && pluginOK == 1) {
			retStr = "yes";

// check for Flash plugin

hasFlash = detectPlugin("application/x-shockwave-flash","Shockwave Flash 3");

if (hasFlash == "no") {

   hasFlash = detectPlugin("application/x-shockwave-flash","Shockwave Flash 4");

and the page users are directed to:

The only way to contact them is via this web form:
which is blocked for mozilla based browsers, and gave me JavaScript errors in ie6.

the site no longer blocks mozilla, but some pages have distorted dislpay, or just don't work (e.g. scrolling)

i sent them a message through the feedback page (with IE7), and got this in response:
Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 800401f3' 

Server.CreateObject Failed 

/sendMail.asp, line 60 


doesn't look good :/

i tried to send them a message again now, and received the same error i reported at comment 6. maybe a phone call is the best choice.

The site seems half-broken even from MSIE, I think this bug should be closed.

the site is certainly riddled with internal errors connecting to it's database. i don't know if its owners care about it at all. for the time being, i can't see a page that doesn't work with mozilla, simply because many pages just don't work. i think we can close, and reopen, or open a new bug, when the site is fixed, if it still has errors.

INCOMPLETE due to lack of activity since the end of 2009.

If someone is willing to investigate the issues raised in this bug to determine whether they still exist, *and* work with the site in question to fix any existing issues, please feel free to re-open and assign to yourself.

Sorry for the bugspam; filter on "NO MORE PRE-2010 TE BUGS" to remove.
