    What browers have you tried?

    Make sure you try (at least) Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer, and Opera

    Yea, thats it. I forgot there were other browsers that came with Panther. I used Internet Explorer (although now as elegant as Safari) and it worked. That is kind of weird that those sites wouldn't work on Safari. I'm so used to everything working perfectly on macs. I guess I just have too high of expectations. Thats why I love my Mac.

    I use buy.com fairly regularly without problems. What browser are you using?

    Edit: Looks like we overlapped, so you answered my question. However I just used Safari to log into the "My Account" section of buy.com without problems. Are you using any add-ons to Safari; i.e. stuff like PithHelmet?

    Seem to work for me on Firefox. Have you tried enabling the IE spoof for Safari?

    With IE, not with Safari spoofing IE. ;) There is a difference.

    Brilliant! :D

    Edit: I just saw your post in the Tiger forum and discovered that you're serious :eek:

    Sounds like a job for Firefox! Keep an 'installed' copy in your home directory so you can access it from any computer.

    I'm using Mozilla (1.7) and all those sites looked just fine.

    If a site looks ugly/doesn't work, i use a different browser..
    Have never had a problem with both mozilla and safari..
    (I find mozilla more compatible than safari, although i haven't used the latest version that much..)
    The first revs of safari wasn't good enuff, that have kept me away from it.
    (why change from a working browser to one that isn't good enuff..)
