java is already present in ubuntu,check synaptic

you'll need wine for IE only

there's a add-on for firefox that reports the browser as being an IE,I just don't remember the name


Get a new bank - and tell your current one why you are moving.

Alternatively, you could, if you are using Firefox, pretend to be using IE. I assume that there are similar tools for other browsers if necessary, I definitely remember this being built into Opera many years ago.

  • I'd feel a little wrong upvoting this because "get a new bank" is not exactly a practical solution - but on the other hand, I agree completely that it'd be an appropriate course of action in this situation. – David Z Jul 17 '10 at 17:15
