I've been using this User Agent Switcher to fake out sites that require 
IE:

I've also been using (FreeBSD ports):

/usr/ports/www/xpi-flashblock

Since I want to be able to use flash for a few things on the web, but 
often the linux flash plugin either renders incorrectly or freezes up 
firefox on freebsd -- this replaces all the flash on a page with 
click-to-view buttons instead of automagically loading all the flash apps 
when the page loads.
