Either way, try logging into another user account on your machine to see if the same problem occurs there. If you don't have another account, you can use System Preferences > Accounts > \[+\] to create one.iMac G5 20" 2GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

I am logging onto the bbc iplayer site using an anonymous proxy through a website service.
Since both Safari and Firefox give this error it sounds like the proxy might not be passing on some information the BBC site uses for its checks. Has it ever worked for you or is the first time you've tried to access it?
I'm sure you are already aware of this, but on the off-chance you aren't, using an anonymous proxy is a bit of a security risk as you have no idea what the proxy is doing with the information you send it. Make sure not to use it when visiting banking sites or anywhere else where you value security.iMac G5 20" 2GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

The reason I´m using the proxy is basically because I´m outside of the UK and in order to watch the BBC on the BBC iplayer you need a UK proxy. PS no I never visit banking or any other sites while using a proxy.Imac G4, Mac OS X (10.5.3)
