Opera and Banking

  Simsy 18:27 07 Jul 2006


I've been using Opera as my browser for ages. I'm now using the latest, version 9.

When I log on to my bank, (Nationwide), one of the steps is to pick various numbers from my passcode number, (which are chosen at random by the system), from dropdowns.

Using Internet Explorer the numbers appear, when selected, as asterisks, to stop anyone looking over your shoulder and reading them. (In much the same way as passwords appear as asterisks when typed.) I did get them to appear as astericks using Opera versions 7 and 8, by changing a setting. I think is was to get the broser to "identify as Internet Explorer"

I can't seem to make this happen in Opera 9, and the numbers are appearing as numbers. I'm only using it at home so it's not a major problem, but I'd liek to resolve it.

Can anyone advise what setting I need to change.

Thanks in anticipation,

"Manage site preferences" and add the site and set to identify as IE in the "Network" tab.
