I had this problem once when I upgraded to a beta of the next version of 

The website refused to let me in due to the browser not being recognised 
and being a possible security issue.

One quick install of the User Agent Switcher plugin and pretending to be 
a different browser problem was solved.

Have had no problems recently with the banks but The Freemans mail order 
website has now decided to deny me use of the checkout facility even 
though it was fine last week.

Oh to live the life of a software outlaw in the eyes of businesses.
