Mozilla Firefox - quibble

After reading all the rave reviews of this program I installed it.

Big problem I find is that a lot of sites I use require Internet Explorer.....this results in not being able to access them.

Is there a simple answer to overcoming this within Firefox? If not, then I do not see any further point in using it.

Go into the tools menu in Firefox, extensions, then get the "view Open Pages in IE via firefox menus"

You will need to spend a little bit of time configuring Firefox to get it to do what YOU want it to do - all the plug-ins are available, so 99.9% of all web pages will open in Firefox - give it a bit of time, explore it, and you might just be pleasantly suprised.

I Find very few sites require IE. The very small % that do, I can happily do without (excluding MS update, and that is a case of 'closed shop').

If they want my browsing, they need to cater to my browser choice. It's up to them. Cater for FF, and I will visit, dont, and I won't.

It's their loss. There are zillions of web sites out there. If they can't be bothered to test it on FF, I can't be bothered to visit it.

I agree, I can't remember the last time I had to use IE.

I found an extension update called "IEVIEW 0.86 by Paul Roub" on the Mozilla Web Site. This was the only extension I could find that bore semblance to what DerekR mentioned above.

I clicked on download and got the following message "Not valid install package". Can anybody help on this please?

If you have Firefox 1.0.1 or 1.0.2 then IEVIEW 0.86 is not a valid extension; it only caters up to verrsion 1.0.
