Running IE frames / tabs in Firefox is kind of silly, it exposes all of IE's flaws in Firefox.

Here is a quote from the developer.

Lastest release v1.95.20100930 (Clean version, NO Window Shopper plugin)

What's New In v1.95.20100930:

  • [BUG FIX] 'Sync Cookie' features stops working since Firefox 4.0b5.
  • [BUG FIX] IE Tab Plus does not properly handle redirects. See bug #23146.
  • [BUG FIX] IE Tab Plus fails on Minefield 4.0b7pre. See bug #23268.
  • [BUG FIX] External links open in a new window instead of a new tab. See bug #23286.
What's New In v1.94.20100904:

  • No Adware, No Spyware, this version is as clean as the old school.
  • Improved compatibility with Firefox 4.0 Beta. See bug #23063, #23062 and #23106.
  • [BUG FIX] Hang of FF after entering an URL in a window that already is running with IE engine. See bug #23069
What's New In v1.93.20100725:

  • [BUG FIX] Fixed OS version detection bug. See bug #22986
  • [BUG FIX] Adblock Plus may block some request inproperly. See bug #23023
  • [BUG FIX] Back doesn't work across Firefox to IE transition. See bug #22963
  • [NEW] Add a built-in Window Shopper online utility (See "ExternalApplications" in options)
  • Updated Spanish locale, thanks J.I. Plaza.
So maybe the AH developer got the message, but I have put him on my blacklist. If Mozilla doesn't clean up its act regarding plugins I may dump them also.

Useful, though, for when you want to use IE.

Quote:
It is not only a great tool for web developers, like the old IE Tab, but also an useful tool for normal users, since you can easily switch to IE when you meet incorrectly rendered web pages in Firefox.

Further down the page in the comment section of the above article some one has identified the supposed location of the spyware files in question for XP, as some members may have a duel boot or XP Mode
