[Homeroast] unable to place order via SM shopping cart system (OT?)

Well, I am on the same exact system and browser and just placed an 
order last Thursday (and have it today) so you can eliminate FF as 
the base culprit.  I do have Java running.  Do you have a script 
blocker?  I'd consider enabling Java and seeing what you get.

FWIW, what country are you in and have you tried checking out without 
getting an estimate?

And have you tried directly contacting SM?
