I am currently using IE7 and have problems using some websites it involves navigation of the webpages. I am considering installing Firefox but will it work within IE7. Also, I amworried about getting Mircrosoft updates.

Hi
Yes it will work and you will have no problem with updates now You can go to add and remove windows programs and uncheck IE7 then go into internet options /programs and uncheck the box that says IE should check ----------.
It will be the best move you will make on your pc and I would take a look at thunderbird if you get any problems with outlook express.
Good luck
Rex
PS You do not need the tab now for Firefox 2.

Hi john
What do you mean by What do you use in Firefox 2 In all previous firefox editions you needed the the IE tab to use some sites that only allowed IE to access but FF2 as the tabbed browsing built in you do not need to add the additional IE tab.
regards
Rex.

I doubt it. FF 1.5 is way better than FF 2.0.
Using 2.0, all of a sudden you are looking at your desktop. FF just disappears. This is without touching a thing, just sitting, reading a page, not even scrolling, arms crossed over chest.
I have switched to Konqueror.
I bet if you try Linux, PCLinuxOS, you will never go back to windows.

Switched to Firefox2 after numerous crashes in IE7 due to the use of Google Toolbar's search function. I still cannot play Gunz: The Duel at http://gunz.ijji.com/ even with IE Tab, anyone have any suggestions?

I too have had no problems with 2.0.0.2, at least not on Linux. Can't say with windows absolutely, but I would assume so.

Although not quite as convenient as IE Tab, I recommend installing IE Tab Lite. IE Tab has a memory leak (look here) and can slow down your comp. IE Tab Lite is a very similar extension, but instead of embedding the IE window into a firefox tab, it actually opens up IE and directs it to the page you are viewing. As such, IE Tab Lite uses less resources....kind of.

The IE tab only works if you have IE.

Or you could use the Launchy extension; you can launch any external app for objects or browser for links & pages.

IE Tab in Firefox
I use Firefox 2.0.0.9 and I think that tab has gone away. If it hasn't gone away where is it? http://images.techguy.org/smilies/confused.gif
