Fafsa is incompatible with my browser

And I have tried the latest Safari (which it should support), the latest FF (which it should support) and the latest Chrome (which it should support)

All three browsers are listed as supported under there compatible browsers for OSX. Anyone else run into this issue?

FAFSA works just fine for me in Opera and Firefox (I never tried it with Safari).

Sorry bud. Doesn't look like you're going to get any financial aid.





It could be a problem with the site or something odd with your account. Have you tried logging in on a regular (read: Windows) computer?

I have completed several FAFSA's with Safari. It seems like the browser message is a warning, but you can continue past it and it works fine...

Fafsa not on a mac

Tried everything recommended on Rumors and nothing. Have Lion and updated browsers and even downgraded a few browsers but nothing. Loaded Opera but still incompatible browser. Great way for the Fed. Gov. to keep their money.

It worked on Safari last year but presently I am facing the same issue. To workaround goto the develop menu and choose IE 8.0 in Safari. Viola, it works!

Funny thing, I just tried like an hour ago to update my FAFSA and it didn't work. It didn't work with Firefox either. It said something about my internet connection on Firefox, I am wondering if it is because I was on Wifi? My mom is going to go to her work and update everything.
