Internet Banking with St George Using Linux Browsers
This page discusses whether or not the St George bank internet banking website currently works with Linux, together with any known work-arounds for problems. This page dates back to 2003, when St George was using different applets for Internet Explorer and Mozilla users, and continued energetically through 2004 when St George suddenly broke previously existing compatibility and left Linux users (and perhaps all Mozilla users) unable to use Internet banking for a time. It remains here as a reference in case there are future problems.

Current status from end of 2006 to April 2009
New HTML site
The new St George Internet banking site that was launched in the second half of 2006 is written in HTML, and I don't know of any problems with Firefox in particular or Linux browsers in general. Users still need to make sure that they are not blocking popups from the stgeorge.com.au domains.
Luke Yelavich reports that the login screen of the new Internet banking site is not accessible to screen readers.
