I had a problem like this.  What I did is found the login page that was
beyond the checks.  This allows me to use the website without going
through all the browser checks and no one is the wiser.  By the way I
tried getting galeon to call itself netscape or msie 5, but it
complained that it couldnt call itself mozilla 4 it had to say it was a
mozilla 5 based browser.
