    I am having some troubles with my internet banking, when trying to do an overseas transfer, drop down menus appear for the country, city, bank etc... I have recently bought a new macbook pro and the menus are not appearing for city, bank etc. My ibook G4 before had no problems with this... I know its not the computer, but I cant think of anything that is different from before..:confused:

    I have spoken with the bank and they seem to think it has something to do with my internet settings... Their system is running fine, apparently.;)

    Is there anyone out there that could shed some light on this problem???

    Thanks in advance for any ideas :)

    Is this through a browser? Are you using the same browser on the new Mac? Have you tried an alternative? I doubt this will be related to network settings but it may be related to plug ins. :)

    Mad Jew thanks for replying...

    I went to an internet cafe today which had pc's using IE... It worked fine! :confused:

    Im just accessing the site through safari, not sure about a browser... I dont think there is any difference between my old ibook and the new macbook pro.

    Plugins??? any suggestions???

    Thanks again and still confused...

    Some banks have sites that do not work well with macs and safari. My bank periodically makes changes to their site and we get problems for a while. The best thing to do is to keep telling them. It is not likely to be your internet settings - it's their poor support people who don't understand macs.

    It probably is a plug-in issue. The web site probably does not use a plug-in that is Universal. Forcing Safari to open using Rosetta should fix this.

    Hey guys thanks for the suggestions...

    I tried switching safari to use rosetta but it still doesn't work...

    I guess Ill just send them an email complaining that their system doesn't work with intel macs.

    If anyone can think of anything else apart from buying a PC, please let me know... I dont like using internet cafes for accessing bank accounts.

    Thanks again. :)

    Have you installed Firefox to see if it works on there?

    Download Firefox. You can then download themes for it to make it almost as visually appealing as Safari.

    What he/she just said. Safari has issues with certain dynamic elements, for some reason. Firefox is the way to go (you can even make it look like Safari, in case you miss it).
