   I used the "Iceweasel" version of Firefox in Debian Etch. I had one
problem initially because I could not open the inline link to the terms and
conditions, but when I phoned I was told "that link never did work, use one
of the other links to the same page". No problems with the login, just the
contents of the online forms, because the words used by HMRC did not seem to
match the information I had been given by my bank.
