Submission + - AOL Mail Rejects Firefox

msoren writes: "This may be a non-story, but I just tried to access my AOL mail account from my Firefox browser — as usual — and I get this: This product has been tested with the following combination of operating systems and browsers and therefore supports: * Windows® 98 o Internet Explorer® 5.5 and 6.0 * Windows® 2000 o Internet Explorer® 6.0 * Windows® XP (Professional and Home) o Internet Explorer® 6.0 and 7.0 o Firefox® 1.5 o AOL® Explorer 1.0 o Netscape® 7.2 * Mac OS X® 10.3.7 o Safari® 1.3 o Firefox® 1.5 — Why has AOL made its free email program incompatible with the latest Firefox browser when it WAS compatible until today? Thanks!"

Do not simplify the design of a program if a way can be found to make it complex and wonderful.
