Microsoft No Longer Blocking Gecko Users From Getting a Passport

For a long time, users of Gecko-based browsers could log in to Microsoft .NET Passport services but were blocked from registering for a new Passport. Now this latter restriction has been lifted and Gecko users can sign up for a Passport without being told to 'upgrade' to Netscape Communicator 4.08. Read bug 141279 for the details.

Using a recent build of mozilla (2002090608) in combination with Adam Locke's precoompiled activeX plugin avaialble here: <> and the UA sidebar available here: <> I am able to use the msn chat plugin. It is not perfect, as bits of the screen surronding the chat box are black, but it is quite usable, especially if one has used it before in IE. I set the UA to be netscape Navigator 4, to get past the MS redirect, then reset it after I leave chat.
