Car Tax Licensing using Firefox 3.6.2

When I go to this site http://www.taxdisc.direct.gov.uk clicking on the menu at the side gives the response "page timed out"
It works fine in IE8 and I haven't blocked cookies.
Any suggestions

Re: Car Tax Licensing using Firefox 3.6.2

I have had timeout problems using that website for the previous couple of years.
I think it a slightly over zealous security measure, where it forces a timeout if you don't complete the current action within a very short time frame - which is a nuisance when you are looking through paperwork to find the information it wants, or take slightly too long checking the details on the credit card confirmation page !.
I have seen this on both Windows and Linux both running various versions of Firefox.
So now knowing that this has been a problem, I make sure I have all the info required to hand, and make sure I don't get interrupted when using this site !.

No issues in Chrome or FF3.6 here

I had time outs but if I chose return to home page and then visited it again it was fine. (Using their menu rather than going direct)

FF 3.5.8 works fine - perhaps you need to get Linux?  Cheesy
