Tracfone Biased Against Linux And/Or Firefox Users

Why should I have trouble purchasing minutes for my tracfone on their website running Firefox on Linux?  Admittedly I didn’t try Firefox on Windows or another Linux browser, but if your server software is so broken that when people try to purchase things from you it spouts messages like this:

Error 500–Internal Server Error

From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol — HTTP/1.1:

10.5.1 500 Internal Server Error

The server encountered an unexpected condition which prevented it from fulfilling the request

You need to fire your web developer and start using a real platform like LAMP.

The thing that really makes me mad was that I was able to fire up Windows 7 in VirtualBox and finish the transaction with no problem.  In this day and age where we pretty much live in the browser, why do we still have to put up with this?
