The browser identity is not the problem.
The relevant tesco page is simply not being correctly nor completely
shown. In fact it seems to be a bit intermittent, on one machine it at
first did not work, then later it did work. It seems to be firefox
version specific too. 3.0.10 is ok, while 3.0.11 is a problem

However, a change of browser to Epiphany, worked very well.
