When using ie6 clicking on "Take the Tour",  open the right page, Mozilla opens
their "We're Sorry" page

1. open ie6
2. go to www.microsoft.com/mobilize
3. click on "Take the Tour"
4. note page where you are sent.
5. Repeat procedure using Mozilla - you are sent to a different page!

Samw results with other links on page, "Read the Proof", or "See the Video".
