I am running IE7 Beta 3 and for the last few days I have been unable to access the halifax web site all other sites are ok. Also cannot access via firefox. Any ideas please.

Probably no consolation, but all is OK here. I can access it with Firefox and IE6.

Browser security settings maybe?

I was able to connect fine until a couple of days ago Now all I get is "internet explorer cannot display this page" have uninstalled IE7 and tried on IE6 but still the same result.

I can access the site on my smartphone or at work just not on my computer.

Check your Firewall is not stopping you

check your MTU setting is not too high. If you're on AOL set it to 1400.

How does my firewall block just this one site?
I can access all my other sites this is the only one I have problems with.

Halifax is revamping its website - that might have something to do with it.

However, it works OK for me with Firefox.

Try adding it to the list of Allowed websites in either IE or Firefox (or whatever browser you use).

There's no real reason why it shouldn't work for anyone - it's the username, password and the security question that allows you to make further progress as you will be aware.

I suspect though that it's IE7 that's the real cause...
