At BTI sign-on generate a pop-up message box with browser warning of non-supported internet browser use.

Per the product documentation, the only browsers supported for accessing Business Transaction Intelligence are Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
However, not all users use these browsers. Apple Mac users in particular are likely to use the native Apple browser Safari exclusively.
Users have experienced and reported that some BTI user interface features do not work properly on Safari. Other browsers, Brave and Edge could also have issues. 
Unfortunately, users of web based applications, are not likely to scrutinize the product documentation before jumping right into it.  
Since there is no way to know for sure what browser a user might use, a warning (notice of the limitation) should be provided to a user when they sign on.

How will this idea be used?

BTI should use the browser's identification string to determine the browser type. Then, should the browser not be Firefox or Chrome, BTI should provide a pop-up message box that informs the user that:
"Firefox and Chrome are the designated browsers for use with BTI. Not all features may be available should you choose to continue".  

At that point it becomes the user's choice to proceed or change to a designated browser. If they choose to continue with the non-designated browser, the user has been warned.
