I remember there was an add-on to Firefox that would allow an Internet Explorer access to those websites that didn't allow Firefox access. Does anyone know where I can find it? I have a site that requires Active-X controls, and I assume if an Internet Explorer overlay was actioned I'd be able to see the subjects (maybe not?:confused:). As you can see, I'm not totally sure that this would work, so any suggestions/help would be appreciated. Thanks

I dont think any plugin wouldn help you there. Sounds like what you are talking about is a plugin that lets you change the browser agent to trick sites into thinking your using IE.
However that wont help you with Active-X.

Edit - there is this site (http://www.iol.ie/%7Elocka/mozilla/mozilla.htm) but it looks like the project has been abandoned judging from when the latest news post was

IE Tab (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1419) is the add-on I use for those pesky sites created by blinkered developers.

IE-Tab only works on windows, because all it does is use the IE engine inside of firefox

Oh. Sorry, I don't use Firefox on my Mac.
