Can not open website at home, but it opens everywhere else

I am a teacher and we have web-based grading. I can open the program at school and at other buildings and towns. Ironically I can't launch it at home. I am on a Mac OSX and use Linksys Wireless N, or I can go straight to the USB cable bypassing the Wireless router. (I thought maybe that would be the cure - wrong). So, I can get on every other website in the world but my grading program. My program launches with Java. I can get to the first web page, go to the grading program, but it will not launch. Any ideas why I can't get it at home? My school computer tech. has no idea what to do. Router problem? Security problem? Befuddled and puzzled in Nebraska. Thanks, Shelly

This may be a long shot.
But do you happen to have a popup blocker running?
Some popup blockers will block Java from opening new windows.
And the most common way to bypass the popup blocker is to hold a key down when clicking on the button in the website that launches your app. In windows it is the control or alt key.
Let me know if you cant figure out which key that would be.
