Hi spence,

Probably a User Agent Switcher extension/add-on could help you with your password reset?
Available for Google Chrome/Chromium and family or for Firefox.

Greets!  ;)

Running different OS flavors in VirtualBox, just for fun!

So you can't reset your password on their site unless you use a dead browser :-\

pretty much... they reset it for you giving you an aaannn password... which matches none of their posted password criteria... which you pretty well hafta just leave there because their validator is broken... or doesn't work in mozilla & chromium... need to remember NOT to mention linux... told me they'd have to mail me something...  :o
PeppermintOS 8,9 & 10 Respins currently installed  on:
'16 Antec Aria rebuild
PMX Respin on '18 Asus VivoBook

Do not despair, grasshopper...
    with patience all will be revealed...
       Through pain, enlightenment will come.

You can almost 'hear' their expression glaze over when you mention Linux :)

I purposely ask Linux questions of the young salesmen at PCWorld (UK PC shop) because I love that "WTF is he talking about" 1000 yard stare :)
