    Have you tried it with Firefox? Is your version of Safari up to date?

    If you post a link to the page that does not work for you, I will try it.

    It would not work in Safari, even with Safari reporting it was Internet Explorer. Firefox had a similar result. I guess it's just bad design on ParcelForce's website requiring you to have IE6 or above. :(

    There are always browser incompatibilities eg. I use Safari to sign onto bank a/cs as I have probelms with Firefox - though a guy I know uses Safari except for bank a/cs where he uses Firefox... Swings and roundabouts.
