    Firefox 4 and Google

    I just now tried to create a Google account while using FireFox 4. I could fill out the form and submit the data, but I always get an error messages saying that I am not old enough to sign up for a Google account (and I tried entering in several different birth years). However, the signup worked just fine with IE 8. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Actually, it is a good idea (security-wise) not to provide accurate information on web sites. I try to make up all data. Why should anyone need to know my mother's maiden name or the town I was born? I reply to such security questions with nonsense (which I dutifully track in PasswordSafe).

    But even saying I was born in 1911 was no good - apparently that made me too young.
