The government of Canada does not seem to care that other browsers and OS's are out there. 
After my experience a few years ago efiling my taxes with revenue Canada I will not use a Federal  Government web site, if for some reason your configuration does not meet their preconceived  rules you are out of luck.  I am still chasing a tax refund from 2002.
The simple solution in this case is use the paper process and any question you don't think they really need to know the answer give them any answer such to one question of how many bathrooms in my house. A number like 95 works. About all you really need to give them is your name and date of birth.
