you need IE Tab for Firefox. yet another handy freedownload
from the Firefox add-ons site. it lets you open a tab in
virtual IE, without bothering to open the IE browser at
I don't understand how I use IE to open a tab for Firefox
and not open IE at all. That 's what it seems like this
is saying. How do I *not* open a program and still have
access through that program to open another program.???
you don't use IE to open anything. you use the Firefox
browser, which has little add-on programs (called extentions)
available to make it more useful to your individual ways of
browsing. things like flash blocking, which prevents any
website from using flash without your express permission, or
ad blocking, or the virtual IE tab, which allows Firefox to
act like an IE browser in one (or more if you like) individual
tab... without the gaping security holes that the real IE
in other words, you never have to use IE again, even for the
abysmally programed sites that only work properly in IE. you
have your Firefox browser open, you go to a site that doesn't
work correctly, you hit the little button on the bottom right
of the browser window which switches the browser to IE mode &
hit reload page. ta daaaa.
i *never* use IE or OE. ever. my browser is Firefox, my email
is Pegasus (although that's no longer supported), i use xNews
for reading Usenet. anything Microsoft does, third party
software can do better, safer & cheaper.
I know how to use tabs like I'm opening another window and
go back and forth between them. Done that already. But
make a site think I'm using it in IE when I'm in
Firefox............??? From what I've been experiencing
it's not like I have a choice. I have IE and am using a
tab in IE to access another site.
I open a window and go to eBay, sign in etc and check on
some items. I want to check a price so I open a tab and
google the item. Nothing there tells me I'm not using IE
when I open a tab in IE. I really don't get this.
because you're using IE. you're not using Firefox. if you use
Firefox, you can add an extention that allows Firefox to
Then I read today from someone elses post how some programs
look funny in Firefox or don't work at all. OOOohhhh
noooo!! That's not an option.
which is why we use IE Tab.
see, Microsoft makes a substandard web design package called
Front Page, which doesn't follow standard web design (HTML)
protocols. their IE browser can read their substandard design
(because it's designed so people have to use their browser to
see Front Page written sites), but *real* web browsers can't
translate the bad design language.
the IE Tab add-on to Firefox "translates the bad design,
without opening the security holes that exist when using IE.
I think we better just quit this while I still have a
brain. Or do I just open a tab and have a new
oh, i certainly could use a new brain extention or even a tab!
yup, that would be *so* useful about now :)
