The actual deny code is at the top of
http://www.professor.co.il/site/functions/js/homepageFunc.js.

By disabling JavaScript, I've found that the main page is a bit messy, with
blocks in the wrong positions. This may require additional work from just
removing the deny code.

it appears like the site was re-designed recently, and is now working well, at
least in my NS7.1. reccomend to close bug.

the site was reorganized. here's an email i got from it's owner:

hi 
please remove www.professor.co.il from your "mozilla unsupported websites"
i have rebuilt it completely and now it does support mozilla (hurray to me)
 
PS - are you aware that by putting direct links to the unsupporting websites you
are in fact increasing their number of directing links hence the popularity
check by google and such search engines?
 
All the best
