The online applications possibly work correctly with other web browsers, under the condition that they allow authentication with a digital certificate.

The FSMA also advises to do the necessary modifications well in advance of a possible deadline, since some problems are not quickly solved (e.g. requesting a new PIN code in the local authority in the case your eID is blocked takes several weeks).
