      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

Internet Banking-Problems with Mozilla and Opera

8 posts in this topic

I have a problem with accessing Internet Banking with Mozilla 1.6 and Opera 7.51. I can login, but then the page is dispayed incorrectly, actually there is nothing on it accept a few lines. It seems that the browser cannot read java scripts properly...

I do have Opera version with Sun Java installed and cookies are enabled, except for the third party cookies.

 

Can this also be a problem in reading the encrypted page?

 

As to Mozilla, do I need to upgrade to the latest version? Or maybe I would not have this problem with Firefox? I am new to these browsers...

 

I will contact the support centre for IB, of course...

 

Can you please help?!!

 

Thanks! :scratchhead:

What? If both mozilla and opera have problems what makes you think either of them are at fault? Probably a IE thing, too bad apparantly your bank only accepts IE customers. Mine doesn't. Perhaps you should change banks.

Banks are notorious for using custom scripting to do things and they are usually "optimized" for MSIE. Considering the problem I'm surprised you even got in. A lot of banks simply lock out any browser other than MSIE.

Well guys, you are right! I have checked with the support service... They do not support any other browser, but IE!!?? As I understood, even Netscape is not supported as they disagreed on some issues in the development of the software. Too bad as I really like Opera and I do not intend to give it up!

 

I think that I will use their Internet Banking only at work where administrators are taking care of patching insecure Microsoft software. :techsupport:

 

Their argument was also that the majority of the users are browsing with IE. And they cannot support all open source software that is being developed (?!).

 

Well, maybe there is something wrong with me, but I never liked being in the so-called 'majority', especially since almost every PC (belonging to my family or friends) that I recently see has quite a lot of garbage (adware, spyware, dialers etc) in it. :eek: Since I have changed the browser I am not infected by anything anymore!!!

 

However, the Internet Banking of the other bank (I am their customer as well) can be accessed by both browsers! :D

 

Maybe I should now start thinking about switching to Linux! As soon as I can...

Well, even though you don't use IE, it is still on your machine and you should keep it updated to protect your machine overall! Since it is still there, you could use it for your banking only.

That ranks among the dumbest thing I heard. If they actualy knew how to make a webpage properly, they would be able to support other browsers. -_-

The majority of their users are using IE because their web site doesn't work in anything else.

 

Tell them to hire a designer that knows what the hell he's doing and it will work in any browser out there. SSL encryption works in any damned browser on the market. There are industry standards for web design. If they would design their site against those standards, they wouldn't have to lose customers who can't use it.
