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.
