Is there a fix for this that can be done at install since I would not like to have to explain it to 100 thousand users. We will be using the Ie and Mozilla as default browser installs. Thanks. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.go to page that requires netscape 4.7 or newer 2. 3. Actual Results: Was denied access to course. Expected Results: Came across as a newer browser than 4.7 of netscape.
This is not a blocker [click on the link for SEVERITY to see what that means]. Lowering severity to normal. Furthermore, without a test URL it's near impossible to see what's happening, but probably it's a bad browser detection, followed by a simple deny. That would make this a Tech Evang issue. You may want to spoof your user agent [falsely claiming that you're using NS4.7 to bypass the browser detection] If you don't know how to do that, you may find a useful help on: http://update.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?id=59&vid=617
Severity: blocker → normal
PS: why did you file this in the Bugzilla product? Bugzilla is the bugtracking system and has nothing to do with the browser? Moving to tech evang - us

Reporter, when did mozilla.org start refusing to work properly with Mozilla? This bug needs a URL that matches the complaint, some page that works in Netscape 4.7 but not Mozilla, or else it will be marked invalid.
Without a URL more specific than "At Boeing there are some online courses", this is INCOMPLETE. If there are current online courses that an outsider can access that are IE-only and you are willing to provide URLs for them, please open a NEW TE bug on it.
