[conspire] bank doesn't like Iceweasel

No, I will have to try the spoof.  

Not usually needing to do such work-arounds, I did some searching to figure out how.
First I found these links that says the ice age has come to an end.

The /packages.debian.org/unstable does list a firefox package.  It is not listed in testing.
Then I found the following link that there is an iceweasel add on.

Unless there is further input, I will try that add on later this evening.
BTW, when I went to a different computer, the bank recognized my login, but not my computer.  I had to get a phone call with a pass code.  A bit of a bother, but protection against stolen passwords.

Have you tried spoofing the user agent string? Some only check that, but some check browser capabilities.
