Scott, it's not as if bugzilla is some fancy DHTML site, like the
Logitech site you mentioned. [*]
In fact Ken's workaround of changing the Safari Useragent implies that
bugzilla is too smart for it's own good and trying to send
browser-specific content, instead of simply being standards-compliant.
[*] For fancy DHTML sites, my ultimate test is my citibank online
was written only with IE in mind. Safari 1.1.1 handles it perfectly.

I think bugzilla is stupidly written. It's just a bunch of HTML forms
and CGI scripts. This is not rocket science. There is *no excuse* for
it to break with a browser that is quite standards compliant (Safari)
and widely used.
Runrev: not many people run Mozilla and bugzilla has got problems with
browsers other than Mozilla. I suggested before: may as well put on the
opening page "Mozilla/Netscape/Firebird is required"
