If a page is problematic, the first step is always to find what is different between the data your script sends and the data a browser sends. Use (for example) the Mozilla Live HTTP Headers to see what the browser is sending and compare that against the data your script sends.

If you already have WWW::Mechanize::Firefox installed, it might be an easy win to just switch over.
