    Try downloading Firefox or Camino and try it with one of those browsers.

    My bank won't let me sign in with the Safari 3 beta (they say they need to test and approve a browser as secure before they'll allow you to use it), but I've never had a problem with Safari 2.

    IF you have the Safari Debug menu enabled, you can tell Safari to tell Websites that it is a different browser. This works 9 time out of 10.

    I find it a bit ironic that Banks are questioning Safari 3 for security, but if you go to the site with IE 5 on a PC.....

    With a lot of banks the browser has to be in their database or they will not allow you to log in to online banking. Wells Fargo is that way, but they do fully support Safari. I would check with your bank. In the mean time like was already stated, try Firefox or Camino for now. Opera should work also, but FF is usually always supported. The info above came from the IT people at Wells Fargo.


    Edit: Agreed Baggss! Makes no sense. Some banks take their sweet time to add a browser though. Safari 2 should work. That Debug menu trick just might work.

    And also might want to try logging in as a different user. Am not able to log into my bank at all and they fully support only Safari and IE. Found someone fairly knowledgeable with OS X on their support staff and a no go.

    However, if I log out and and back in as a new user I set up, I can log in via Safari, Opera, and Firefox. Have not been able to determine what user settings I may have that are preventing it yet. And to be honest, as often as I log into the bank, it's not really worth the time of troubleshooting vs switching users.

    Bobtomay: It might be a security certificate issue. Can you access other https:// websites with that user in Safari?

    Try going to this website - can you load it?

    I just tried www.cibc.com and it works for me no problem (Safari 2). I also do a lot of online banking with 2 different banks, and they also work flawlessly as well.

    Yep, it loads fine. Haven't had any issue with secure check out at other sites either. My bank is the only one and have never been able to log onto it from my user account. My wife can log onto it from her MacBook also. Bound to be something I changed early on.

    Here too we do our online banking with Safari. The Tiger version, not the Safari 3 beta though.

    similar issue - its not prob with browsers. Its prob with Mac accounts settings
    I have been having the same issue with Macbook pro. I cannot login to bank sites through Safari or Google Chrome from my default mac account. I am able to login to these bank sites from my Guest account. Not sure what settings I need to do. I have tried everything on resetting the safari totally. nothing worked.

    You're responding to a thread from five years ago.

    If you can login to your bank using Safari from a guest account, then the problem clearly isn't Safari (or Chrome), the problem lies with some plug-in you're using (maybe Flash?).

    You'll also need to be more specific than "can't login" in explaining exactly what's stopping you if you want a detailed answer.

    Thanks for your response. When I enter my user ID and password, it goes to secure pop up page and it stays white... Nothing loads up. Sometimes it says its loading and never does but stays white.
