    Is there by any chance a method to make a website recognize that I'm using IE8 when I'm actually using Firefox? I don't have IE8 installed and don't want to ever install it since it's useless and terrible. But for one of my classes, I need to install it for an online portion. The login site somehow knows that I'm not using IE8 and so would like to somehow get around this workaround if possible.

    As far as i know you can't. The reason they do that is because they either have tested their site with only IE or they already know that it won't work with FF.

    I agree with you on IE, it's crap. I always use FF except when the site really wants IE :)
