The site is sniffing for the word Firefox in the browser's user agent. If you use about:config and change general.useragent.extra.firefox to something that has the word Firefox in it the site will work. This is a bug in the site as it should not be doing that. More details on how to do it right are here: https://wiki.mozilla.org/User:Sardisson/Gecko_is_Gecko

Robert, I changed the general.useragent.extra.firefox to Firefox/3.7a4 and the site built just fine. Thanks for the tip!
