You might also want to disable "block pop-ups" in the Safari menu,  
and change the "cookie" preference to "accept all from  
everywhere" (that's not what it says, but you get the drift) to  
ENSURE that it's not a problem with Safari. I have one regular bill  
that I pay online that CANNOT be paid unless the pop-up blocking is  
off -- it took FOREVER to find that out.

PS. Credit unions are vastly superior to banks, in that it is not  
their PURPOSE to rip you off. You might want to consider a switch.
