Confirm on Mozilla 1.4 and Firebird 0.7.

Their sniffing script
(http://recrutement.bnpparibas.com/applis/recrutement/siterecrutfr.nsf/viewResJavascript/Common/$file/navigateurs.js)
come from Netscape (even if a bit old). They have added a filtering function at
the end to exclude Netscape 6 (but not 7). They announces they want to support
mozilla 1.0 so this is probably a bug and not a "wanted" feature for recent
mozilla's.

The added function does the following assumptions :
- if mozilla based : is a netscape browser
- if a netscape browser and not Netscape7 : is Netscape 6n Netscape 4.x or lower

To filter only Netscape 6 and not recent Mozilla or Gecko browser here a quick fix :

Replace the line 218 :
if ((is_nav6 && !Netscape7) || is_nav2 || is_nav3 || is_nav4 ) {

By the two lines :
var NotNetscape = (agt.indexOf('netscape')==-1) ;
if ((is_nav6 && !Netscape7 && !NotNetscape) || is_nav2 || is_nav3 || is_nav4 ) {

Yes a redesign made in a crazy way ;)
Sometimes it's simpler to just use your HR Software and post the jobs directly on your website like http://www.humansourcing.com is doing it !
