Hello helpers!!

i am trying to work out how to use the IE tab on mozilla firefox, have downloaded it (i think!) but dont know what todo next.
The reason i wanted it was because when i use my hotmail with firefox, the "send pictures" isnt available and i was told it only worked when you used it with IE.
So am i right in thinking that i could set my email that when it opened it was in IE?

an easy task, i thought..........

mothercranky,

There are 2 stages that work:

1. make the icon appear on the toolbar

2. set up the programs to use IE

1. Go to View - Toolbars - Customise. Find the IE Toolbar icon and drag it to the main Firefox toolbar. OK out.

2. Right-click on the icon and fill in which sites you want it to use.

You may also have IE Tab Options on the Tools menu and you can set it up from there, but I find it useful as an icon too.

Regards,

Felix

aha

i have managed to put the icon on the toolbar, and nearly completed my quest, when i hit the shortcut to my email the little 'e' came up next to the address and i thought i had cracked it.

but

there is something amiss, it looks like its trying to load but just keeps making the 'clicking' sound and nothing comes up

mothercranky,

Which little clicking sound?

The IE Tab isn't always effective; sometimes you just have to use IE itself.

you know the clicking noise it makes when a page is about to open?
