2 is specific to 10.4 so you have to upgrade the OS which costs $$.

To add insult to injury, I just downloaded Firefox and discovered it's
broken in it's own way. If I try to visit
I get the following error from gss_accept_sec_context:

 GSS_S_FAILURE: failed to find HTTP/ at FOO.NET(kvno 3)
       in keytab /var/lib/test/test.keytab

So it's doing a reverse lookup and using an alias for the machine instead
of just using the server name entered.
