Found the problem. It is the browser identification. If I use a string
which shows my browser is Firefox, the add payee search field works
perfectly. Any other identification (Seamonkey or Iceape) does not work.
Currently, this works in prefs.js:
user_pref("general.useragent.override", "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux
i686; en-US; rv:1.9.1b1pre) Gecko/20080915000512 firefox/2.0");
And this is with noscript and adblock enabled with the bank's website
white listed in noscript.
