So.. my Ubuntu 10.10 box having been supplied with RPA data for Firefox and Thunderbird, upgraded me to Firefox 8.0 about a week ago.
Interestingly now if I try to hit http://www.asb.co.nz it now tries to send me a download into my browser...
"application/vnd.wap.xhtml+xml (-1 bytes)"
If I hit their Fastnet site directly https://fnc.asbbank.co.nz that renders as expected - until you finish your session, click 'logout' and it tries to redirect you elsewhere.
I was engaging ASB via Twitter who have their guys 'looking into it' and it appears to be related to my Firefox 8 upgrade.
Interestingly I also discovered that www.hotfrog.co.nz wont load in Firefox 8 either. However I grabbed the User Agent Switching plugin last night, and today I can visit both of the above with an alternative user-agent selected.
For comparison here's my pre and post-upgrade user-agents:
"Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:7.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/7.0.1"
(well, as of 11 November)
"Mozilla/5.0 (Ubuntu; X11; Linux x86_64; rv:8.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/8.0"
(as of today)
Interesting the 'Ubuntu' assertion that's been inserted.
So, um, 'hai hotfrog, hai ASB, please update your user-agent lists, thx!' :-)
(And it's not just me. Check out Auckland LUG discussion for more.)
Web URL's known to not work with my FF8/Ubuntu User Agent:
www.asb.co.nz as at 20111130 renders mobile site. @ASBBank have Acknowledged and are 'looking into' it.
www.hotfrog.co.nz as at 20111130 doesn't work at all. @HotFrogAU has Acknowledged which is excellent.
www.cudo.co.nz as at 20111130 renders mobile site. No tweeting for them?
