How can I
reset my password if I've forgotten it?
Simply click the link on the right-side of the Home page below
the Logon box titled, "Click here if you forgot your password." Once you
enter your email address (the same one you registered with), a new password
will be sent to that address immediately. You may then login, and
optionally, use the 'Your Account' link (very top of the Home page) and then
select the 'Change password' link to pick a new password of your own.
browser should I use with the Fives Online Store?
- Answer: You can use almost any modern web
browser with our site. Both Firefox
(v48) and Chrome (v52) have the best overall navigation, document handling, and printing support
with the Fives Online Store. You will want to ensure that with any website you
use for secure transactions (such as online purchases), that the web
address contains https:// and it supports modern encryption
standards such as TLS 1.2. Older standards (such as SSL) are known to be
vulnerable to hackers. As such, we recommend that you use Firefox version 40
Chrome version 40 or higher, Opera version 30 or higher, or
Internet Explorer 11 (IE 9 or 10 users see note
below)*. For mobile browsers (smart-phones),
the same versions will work for mobile (Firefox 40+, Chrome 40+) or Apple
Safari 7 or higher. For more information,
click here to see a full list of web browsers with TLS 1.2 support.
Internet Explorer 9 or 10 users can use the Fives Online Store with a change
to settings. Click the 'cog-wheel' icon in the top-right
and then 'Internet Options' in
the menu, click on the Advanced tab, look in the 'settings' section in
the middle, scroll all the way down to the end of the list and check the
boxes (enable) for "Use TLS 1.1" and "Use TLS 1.2" then click Apply
and then OK, and
restart your browser. These are un-checked (disabled) by default in IE 9 and 10.
when using the Back button in my web browser, I see a message, "Webpage has
expired" - why does this happen?
- Answer: This is
a common issue with Internet
Explorer. Most web sites that generate real-time data after
you submit a form (like a search) are
set to expire this information immediately. IE strictly honors this as a
This does not happen when using browsers like Firefox or Chrome in most
cases, however. So you can try a different web browser, or simply look at the
bottom of most of our pages (such as My Documents for orders,
invoices, etc.) and you will typically find a 'Back' button to take you back
to the previous page.
Why am I unable to see
the State field on the Registration or Contact Us forms?
If you go to our registration page, and pick a
country like U.S., France or Germany the state field should show up.
However, selecting a country such as Egypt, the state field goes away, as

program blocking javascipt (or any script language). Many websites will fail
