But try to be humble and to find out the facts first. "You catch more flies with honey than vinegar."

Point well taken, and whole-heartedly agreed to.

The "hosing-me comment" was more for comedic relief than anything else.

I too am running Firefox in Windows XP on two different machine with the same result. I also had a co-worker check his account from his computer and he also doesn't have the button.

I tend to think it has something to do with different classes of accounts or levels of accounts. My IRA in question is very small -- $10k --- the portion of my portfolio which I'm ready to have available to invest in bonds at this time as I feel my way through this corner of the market.

I will let you know how I make out, as it is interesting to understand how these brokers make information and services available. I know E*Trade has an elite trading platform that they only make available to accounts over $25,000 and I would've envisioned E*Trade having similar tools or features, but I find it interesting that something as basic would be turned on or off based upon account level or some other flagging system they have.

As an aside, the E*Trade point may be moot... I haven't had enough time to really test drive it, but I found an add-on for Firefox called Tabletools .26 which allows you to filter, sort, or copy in a text tab delimited format information that shows up on web pages in HTML tables.

A quick hi-lite of a table, right-clicking, selecting "Other Table Tools" and selecting between 2 or 3 options such as tab-delimited text and justified delimited text gives you a very clean cut and paste into your favorite spreadsheet. You can also sort or filter the HTML in place on the website with a few clicks of the buttons.
