My bank website will check for 128-bit encryption in my browser before it will show my banking transactions.  If it doesn't recognize that encryption, it won't show my transactions, but rather, tell me to download Firefox 1.7 or higher version.  I've got 3.6!!!??  Apparently, the bank website doesn't recognize the 3.6!  They say, "PLEASE UPDATE YOUR BROWSER"

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to into my account.
2. click into account for details
Actual Results:  
message comes up: "please update your browser"

Expected Results:  
see my account details; bank website should have recognized 3.6, just like it did with previous versions.  

Don't know if it's you or my bank, but something changed.  My guess is that FF3.6 did something funny to throw off my bank.

Now I have to go use Internet Explorer again!!!  Damn!  Do you like me having to go to IE?

I downgraded to 3.5.8 and all was well.  I also used IE, and all was well.
I upgraded to 3.6, and got different, yet still failing results.  
Tried to reproduce in safe-mode, and all was well! (3.6)
Then I reverted to normal mode, and the problem is gone - all is well!

My bank wrote: "At the time you attempted to access your information online, the the error you received was presented due to an unexpected outage. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. "

So it appears that this is resolved, and may not have been a bug at all.
