Hi there,

I've been using IE until recently, but was having some problems, so I switched to Firefox. For the most part, this has helped. On the other hand, there are a few annoying things...
Does anyone use Microsoft Outlook Web Access? My school's remote access email system uses this Web Mail. In IE, using this was fine- but in Firefox, the Web Mail is a bit dodgy-

  • There is no reading pane/option to enable a reading pane
  • Pressing "ctrl+k" does not match a name with one on the server
  • There is no HTML or Rich text editing available
  • The overall layout isn't that great

Does anyone know what I'm talking about and if there is any way to make Firefox open my Web Mail like IE did? At the moment, I'm using IE just for this process.


Second question:
I'm using Windows Live Messenger, but when I click the button to take me to my Hotmail inbox, or click on "Send [email protected] an email", it opens up an IE browser. I have made Firefox my default browser, but this hasn't helped the problem. Any ideas?

Thanks,

~Paz

You should be able to fix this by downloading the IE Tab Option add in for firefox which allows you to view certain web pages as if you were using IE. The best way to get this is to search google for ie tab option and you should be able to find a download pretty easy. I use Outlook webmail for work and this fixed the problem for me.

Regarding the Live Messenger problem, I've encountered it in other programs & have been able to track it down a couple of times (by contacting the developer). It's likely that the program calls the browser by specifically running IE rather than by calling the default browser.

Mostly, the developers don't care (and I quickly abandon their software) but a couple have responded & so far it's always been the same-they specifically invoke IE.
