Website creators need to optimize their sites for all browsers, including the market leaders such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Google Chrome. Unfortunately, many web designers make their sites compatible with Internet Explorer without regard for users who use other browsers. If you use Mozilla Firefox and access a website that needs Internet Explorer to function properly, you can use add-ons to make Firefox act like Internet Explorer, eliminating the need to use the actual browser itself.
Launch Firefox and navigate to the IE Tab 2 website at http://addons.mozilla.org.
Click "Add to Firefox" to download the extension.
Click "Install Now" to allow IE Tab 2 to install.
Restart Firefox. Go to a website requiring IE. The add-on will auto-detect if the site should be viewed in IE for optimal performance and load the site appropriately.
Tips & Warnings
- Add-ons provide additional functionality within the web browser by adding buttons or toolbars or increasing compatibility with various sites. There are thousands of official and user created Firefox add-ons to improve your browsing experience.
