Netgear GS748tp reset

I’ve an old Netgear 48 port switch and I set the password at some point. Now I want to see about uploading later firmware etc, it appears that they have a reset button so I pressed it hopefully, it resets and I can find it on the network.
And the default password is the very clever word password
Unfortunately, when I try to look at this web page with a modern browser, I get errors in the .js files in the core directory. Off to find an old browser that this thing might like.
Although at end of life, Netgear does have a support page. The arcane reason is that modern browsers IE8+ and Firefox set more concurrent session that the UI can handle, so you have to turn that down. 
Firefox, change the parameter to 2 (and remember to turn it back up when you are done):

In the address bar, type: about:config

Look for: network.http.max-connections-per-server
