If youre using one of the Mozilla-based Netscape browsers, you can go into Edit->Preferences->Advanced->Scripts and turn off Javascript; the Netscape detection on the web pages requires Javascript to work, and without it, the pages work just fine. It's annoying to have to do that, but at least you can get to the data.

That's a problem with the way the Javascript code is written; it's broken for the Mozilla-based browsers, which work similarly to IE. If the 'browser version' code looked for 'Gecko', and lumped both IE and Gecko-derived browsers together for script coding, it would work.

thx fellas. Even so, I would think it would be HTC being the proactive one on this issue.  They have had that "Netscape support for stats coming soon." on the scores page a long while.  Or I guess they could just change it to say "you must have IE to view this page".

Or they could turn it off and let us deal with it even though its broken, it's not like it's THAT big of a deal.  I'd rather fight to work with a broken page, than be denied access.

yep, it is not a show stopper, just saying...If you say netscape support is coming soon, then OK, if you say IE only, and maybe netscape later, thats different.  Its not an either/or question.
