First? You kinda' highjacked his thread with you Citibank problem. You should
have started a one. Not a big deal. That happens here often.  ;-)

I have read, somewhere, that Greasemonkey will allow both CNN and FOX videos
when setup correctly. Keep trying. As for Konqueror? I haven't used it in years.

I did NOT apply for a credit card but I can access citibank.com with Firefox

Good luck and keep trying.
