I currently have IE tab installed, and have tried editing my page through 'standard' firefox, as well as firefox with IE tab enabled. Every time I try to edit my myspace firefox decides to replace the "<!" of my comment tags with ".." making my page very ugly and not fully functional :mad: . Has anyone else had this problem? Is there any thing that you can suggest to remedy it? Thanks in advance.

In conjunction with IE tab, you have to have the Firefox Extension that allows you to select opening the webpage with IE, IEView. Then select the pull-down when you visit that webpage and reload it or revisit it again and Firefox should open the webpage in IE. That should alleviate your problem once you download and install IEView for Firefox.

Given that you installed and used IEView w/IETab, then you're opening the MySpace webpage with IE, independent from Firefox.

What version of IE are you using?

I see what you mean now, I was right-clicking the link and selecting "open link in IE tab", you meant for me to right click and select "open in external application" then select IE. The thing about that is: I have already gone into add/remove programs and removed IE from my computer because I HATE it. So, it looks like I have no other option than to re-install it?:(
Thanks again

I thought it was gone, but I just tried it on one of the links on this page, and IE came right up... Going to go try it on myspace now.

I was able to get into my profile in IE and edit it, save the changes and view my profile, only to find the same frustrating result!!! The more I work on this, the more I think the solution is going to be something stupid and irritating!!!:mad:
Thanks for all the help (just the same) guys.
