Anyone else find Firefox to be slower?
The whole thing has been slow to respond for the last few days.

The difference between Firefox and IE may be that IE has already downloaded all the graphics and uses the ones on your computer while Firefox has to download all of them for the first time while you wait. Mebbe it will get better after a little forum browsing.

Use the extension (add-on) IE Tab https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1419

Easy to use. Go to the website in Firefox and then right click the mouse and select "View page in IE tab"

Boom. No more IE.

Mike,

Okay, I downloaded the extension. When I click to view page in IE tab . . . you said "no more IE". What do you mean? When I click the view page in IE tab, I thought that was supposed to switch me from Foxfire to IE?

Sorry, I'm confused.

After you install the extension, I believe you have to close Firefox then re-open Firefox for the extension to become "active"

When you are at a page such as this one and right click to bring up the menu, left click on the "view page in IE tab" entry. It will load the necessary components FROM IE so you are able to view the page properly within Firefox. It will NOT open the IE browser. What it essentially does it make the web page within the Firefox tab IE compatible for viewing in Firefox.
You will see the blue "e" in ONLY the tab that you told it to view in IE environment. Look at the following page and notice how the is in "IE Mode", so to speak. mozdev.org - ietab: index
Notice that then right click menu has changed to the IE version when you selected to view in IE

A site I usually have to work with (View in IE Tab) is my 401K site

Hope this is more clearer.

Thanks I appreciate the help. I'll work with it a while and see if I can get comfortable with it.
