Seems to work with Mozilla 1.6 also.  But I'd just comment

(a) the site is using some very ugly JavaScript, some of
    which varies its behavior depending on the user-agent
    string (usually a BAD idea);

(b) there are many bugs and inconsistencies among browsers;

(c) therefore any browser they haven't debugged it with is
    likely to not work.

I suppose you could try playing with the user agent string
that's transmitted by Firefox....
