For example, at comcast.net I get the message:

"We have detected that the browser you are using is not fully supported by the Comcast.net web site. You can view this site using your current browser but it may not display properly, and you may not be able to fully use all features.

At kerpoof.com I get:

You must enable JavaScript and Flash to access Kerpoof's activities.

You are seeing this page because you either do not have Adobe's Flash Player installed, or you have scripting turned on in your browser preferences.

I have the latest Java and Flash Players installed with Firefox 3.6.9. In Tools Options, Java script is enabled. What setting needs changing for these sites to recognize my browser?

It is a small but annoying problem. I, and sometimes friends, use my Gmail account to check their email. In the username window of Gmail, which I access with Firefox 3.6.9, a list of all past users shows up when I click in the window. I cleared Google cookies, and All history, but the list remains! I can hide the list, but not clear it, if I check 'Form and search history'. But the list is alive and well when I uncheck this option! Is there a way to get rid of the list?
