Good suggestion. I looked in the Stretch distribution a couple of days
ago, but, of course, Seamonkey had been removed.

I am running Firefox ESR 52.4.0 (64 bit) on my [up-to-date
Stretch platform. When] I attempt opening Intellicast,
either with Speeddial or tying the URL, Firefox crashes.
This just started happening yesterday
and there are no warnings or errors.
I'm not aware of any bank wise enough to offer an
HTML 1.0 interface that can be browsed by Lynx.
Not that they aren't wise enough, but their sites wouldn't be pretty
enough. Gotta have bling, y'know.
I have the impression that website/browser capabilities are
now far beyond being deterministic or even vaguely testable.
Complexity is a weapon. (The KISS principle is a countermeasure.)
When the heavy hand of government is starting to look preferable
to market forces, we're in truly-late-stage capitalism.

I appreciate the replies.
I'm probably going to have to change browsers, although I like the
way the Firefox handles Speeddial.
Have you tried Seamonkey? It's a variant that I switched to when
Firefox release 29 changed its user interface in ways I didn't like.
Does the job for me.
And I make sure to shut it down when I'm finished surfing the web.
I downloaded and compiled the src from The Seamonkey Project. Compiling
the src reminded me of years ago when I used to compile the Linux kernel
- an agonizingly long procedure, but it finally finished. The browser
still crashed when loading www,distrowatch.com!!!
