Webviewer Default Browser shows Safari 1 ?

I have a contradiction that I can't understand.

Using OSX 10.6.+ / FMS v11+ When I connect with webviewer to GoDaddy web email it shows "Unsupported Browser".

When I use GoDaddy's browser check in Safari it shows "MacOSX Safari 5.1.7". The same check under Filemaker shows "MacOSX Safari 1.0".

I didn't expect that ...

Yet when I use another browser detector (recommended by Joel in a different thread) it recognizes the FMP webviewer as:

Browser: Safari

Browser Version: 534.57.2

User Agent String: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_6_8) AppleWebKit/534.57.2 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/531.9


Mind you in FMP the GD web email page loads and they can read the emails but when trying to reply GD presents a message saying "PopUp Windows Blocked" so it fails.

The PopUps are not blocked in Safari prefs.


Can anyone point out what might need to be done ?
