I was flabbergasted that the Parcelforce website did not work when I used Firefox and even more gasted when it said it couldn't support my favourite operating system (Linux). I wrote to them complaining and got this reply: wrote:
Dear Mr Bean

Apologies in the delay in responding to you.

We endeavour to support as wide a customer base as possible, but it is not always possible to support every combination of operating system and browser. Doing so would exponentially increase the amount of testing and associated costs required each time we made a change. We therefore made the business decision to support most Windows operating systems and Mac OX.

Due to the different versions of Windows Vista available, this operating system is not currently one of our supported operated systems although some customers do use this system successfully to book collections.

I hope this has clarified our position.

Best regards

One imagines that their position is stuck in the mud somewhere just after the primordial swamp ;-)
