* Check the address for typing errors such as instead of

The address should be click here and not the one you are using (there is no .com on it).

Couldn't find the link with Internet Explorer 6 either. Maybe it's just a website error, not a browser problem?

Another point is that it is extremely rare for me to type a web address into the browser address bar.

I normally use a search engine (Google) to find the approximate address and then use that to complete my search. For example, in your case, I typed "birmingham gov" into Google and that came up immediately with a selection of web addresses for me to choose from.
