How can Firefox open Explorer Sites
« on: November 08, 2009, 08:47:12 pm »

I am trying to open a website with firefox and it says I will need
Internet Explorer for it.

Can't find a setting in firefox for it. Is there one? Where?

Opera does open the page w/o problem

There's a Firefox extension you can install called User Agent Switcher and you can set this to tell the web site that you are using a different browser such as Internet Explorer. That might get you in.

Thanks! It seems to work.

First I set to Explorer-6 and X crashed. Then with Explorer-7/8 the page opened.
Dinner now until further exploration.
