    Can any Safari user advise on this problem,

    My on-line banking page won't open, have checked Safari security settings and followed the instructions from Safari Help, cleared cash, reset etc etc .. but still won't open.. also reported bug to Apple.

    Works fine using Firefox

    Safari 4.0.3

    OS: Vista business

    message:

    Safari can’t open the page “https://welcome27.co-operativebank.co.uk/CBIBSWeb/start.do” because Safari can’t establish a secure connection to the server “welcome27.co-operativebank.co.uk”.

    thanks in advance

    Hi Jim.
    Funny that.

    I have an account I dont use or visit very often. First time after getting my Imac I couldnt get in. Found the page ok but the site wouldn't recognise my password or any of the security settings.

    I phoned the bank and they gave me a reset code, after that I had to redo all the security questions and answers.

    When I told the girl on the phone that I had changed to safari she just said Uh Huh as if she gets it all the time....... and I have heard other stories about some sites not recognising safari.

    All works fine once I got in the first time.

    Hi, Jim

    Sorry but I just had to say it, perhaps the bank won't let you "Clear any More CASH":Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Hi Jim.

    I get the feeling that most web sites are set up to work with Microsoft and lack compatibility with anything else.:Doh:

    It's the site programmers and developers.

    Mention anything to them that doesn't have the word Micro++++ in it and they say ...What!

    I always have to drop back to IE...:Doh: When doing my internet banking.

    There's no...or doesn't appear to be....compatibility with other browsers.....

    So much for freedom of choice eh?:Angry:

    I have found that a number of financial sites are happier with Firefox than Safari (and that's on a Mac). It goes without saying that they are all designed with the almost ubiquitous "Seattle Browser" in mind rather than any of the other excellent browsers now commonly in use.

    Also, a number of banks are now introducing security software. I am aware of RBS group providing "Rapport" from Trusteer as a free security download. So far, there is not a Mac version so it may not work with Safari for Windoze either. Not sure if your bank is using this but it may be worth bearing in mind.

    Hi Philip

    I have the same issue on the Mac using Safari ..
    after Googling the problem it would appear to be a well documented issue, there is even a page on the Apple help site devoted to it .. I won't lose sleep over it .. :Laughing:

    thanks for your input

    Not sure about the PC version but the Mac version has the facility to open while masquerading as another browser. Go to preferences > advanced > show develop in menu then select the browser style you want to open the file in.

    Hi John

    Tried that .. Safari promptly crashed.. thanks for the suggestion

    Will there ever be a perfect browser.. ? Probably not, so it's back to Firefox, not perfect either but at least it opens the bank page.. :Laughing:

    Hi,
    I've just had a phish attack when trying to sign on to the Coop and have been searching the Web for solutions, so apologies if this has come too late. That address is redirecting to a site trying to obtain your security details, so perhaps Safari is doing a good job in stopping you getting there! (thinking about it, you must be using a Mac, so I'm not sure how you've got infected).
