This website uses ActiveX controls, which aren't supported in Mozilla, because that's a cross-platform browser. This website will *only* work in Internet Explorer on Windows, and nothing else. No Mac, no Linux, ... That's why they display the warning ! On the bright side, you can find an Active-X plugin at http://www.iol.ie/~locka/mozilla/plugin.htm , which might help you to run ActiveX controls (it can be used to run Windows Media Player for example). This is the same one as included in Netscape 7.1. But I guess you will still see the warning, since the website will still detect that you're not using Exploder.
Summary: This site requires Explorer 4.0 or above. It reports Mozilla as Netscape 5 and refuses to load the whole window. Is this fixable or should I just switch to Exploer to view this sort of page (which is a pain). → ca.com - This site requires Explorer 4.0 or above.
