    Everyone blames it on cookies. I have cookies enabled in Firebird and Intuit still turned me down. I came back with IE and surprise surprise, I was let in!

    Macromedia's site also doesn't work with Konqueror or Safari. How many Mac users do you think they've pissed off recently?

    Yes, I get that message with Mozilla when I have Flash Disabled, I thought Macromedia was meant to advocate accessibility, however some parts 'non-flash HTML version’ that should have been available in the HTML only were inaccessible.

    I have validated today the accessibility comformance of the Macromedia page:
