Hello brightsun;

It is a fact of life that IE rules web sites. There are some differences between the way IE loads web sites and the way other open-source browsers, like FireFox, loads web pages. Many web sites still insist on only caring about their IE visitors. There was an Add-on called IE Tab that would bridge the gap and allow FireFox to display web sites like IE. It was not compatible with FireFox 3.6 and has been dropped. However, someone else has taken up the development and an Add-on for FireFox 3.6 is now available as "IE Tab 2". If you like, you can add it to your FireFox and switch to IE mode when web sites don't load properly.

Hope this helps?

Coral IE Tab is IE Tab's replacement and it works very well. If you find a page that does not render correctly in FF open that page in FF using Coral IE tab. I do this when viewing Microsoft sites.

Firefox?

  1. Close down Firefox completely: At the top of the Firefox window, click the File menu, and select the Exit
  2. In Windows, click
    Start
    , open the All Programs list, and navigate to the Mozilla Firefox folder. In the Mozilla Firefox folder, select Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode)...
    Firefox should start up with a Firefox Safe Mode dialog.

  3. In the Firefox Safe Mode window, select Reset toolbars and controls.
  4. Click
    Make Changes and Restart

As Iseeuu posted above, some sites are not going to display properly in FF. These sites are written only for IE. Using Coral IE Tab or IE Tab 2 extensions will solve this problem.

If the site you are trying to visit is not coded properly for FF, no that fix will not work. If some of your settings in FF are causing the problem, yes it may work. If the site is not properly coded, the only fix is Coral IE Tab or IE Tab2.

I have not used IE Tab2; but I do use Coral IE Tab frequently. What these extensions do is to switch the rendering engine. The rendering engine is what displays the web page. Coral IE Tab causes FF to use the IE rendering engine to display the page. Thus the page display properly. Some websites are designed for the IE rendering engine and do not make allowances for any other rendering engine.

I would suggest you try this before resetting your FF settings to default.
