Bank and Linux browsers

Hello. Im just asking do you have access to your bank account via linux browsers (mozilla,konqueror,galeon........etc.). Cause i just noticed that i cant anymore use my account, because the bank has changed something security systems. when im trying to move to page where i could give login and passw.
it says download PSM (personal security manager) i was thinking is this something MS application. Oh my, well maybe i just go to bank and shout out loud.

yes, you need PSM to enter sites that have SSL(encryption). What distrobution are you using? if it is an RPM based distro, goto your package manager and just search for mozilla-psm...

if you don't know what i mean, just tell me what you know and i'll get ya there.

Head over to You can get the PSM rpm's there. That will be good for mozilla and galeon. I never had to get it for Konqueror so i assume it's already there.

I use Opera as well, in one bank it works flawlessly, in my other one it tells me I can't use their sites because cookies aren't enabled (they are) yet lets me log in and works normally also.

Thanks everyone

Heh i almost changed my bank. Thank for your replys. Im using RH 8.0 and yes i found PSM package for mozilla but it isnt installed by default cause i was deselected it.

Like Linus sayed "just for fun". I almost have forgot how boring windows was. Nowadays i learn everyday more about computers and how they work.
