Well, that page did not work for me with Firefox ESR 52.6.0 (64-bit) on my 
Wheezy system, even after enabling Java and Javascript and disabling NoScript.

Such a failure is unusual for me--occasionally, I have found a few pages with 
a similar problem, and without knowing exactly, I attribute the problem to the 
webpage using more advanced features than my version of Firefox can deal with.

I may try the same page later on my Jessie (iirc) system with a more up-to-
date Firefox.  (It is a pain / frustrating to type in that information and 
then have it fail to do anything, but this (the subject of the petition) is an 
important issue.)
