tredegar is right, sort of

You can have your browser "lie" to the server and tell it its IE. However, some of these web apps use very MS specific API or function calls - particularly if its built using .NET. Try it the easy way first.

That's just a recursive acronym. True to does not emulate, but it does the job.

The name is the same as "GNU" "Gnu is Not Unix" or "Lame" "LAme is Not a Mp3 Encoder".

Secondly, if it "required" IE then get Opera and have it tell the servers it is IE.
It all depends on how that "rule" is enforced.

I have the same problem, some of the javascript code we have in a web apps we developped is not displaying correctly in Firefox (some Microsoft specific javascript code...).

You can have a perfectly functional IE 6 with WINE. You just have to use Winetools which is a GUI which will help you configure Wine through wizards and install IE for you.

Ideal if you don't want to break your back with the very tricky conf of Wine.......

do i need to install IE or is it an emulator?
Wine is an emulation layer (i.e. it emulates the Windows system stuff but doesn't emulate processor instructions (since it's running x86 code on x86)).

First download and install the latest vesion of Wine. Then this script is very good for automating the installation of IE.

Netscape allows that, but I don't know if Netscape has a Linux version. I was using Netscape at the beginning of term when my Firefox was being stupid. (This was all under WindowsXP Pro, BTW.)

Good luck!

Netscape 6.x & 7.x are just Mozilla Suite 0.x and 1.x with a different name. Netscape Browser 8.x is Firefox 1.x with a different name.

Hmmm,
Maybe it is this .Net stuff as Dragineez said. I haven't come across it yet!
I have assumed that you do have java and flash installed and enabled?
You might get some hints as to what is wrong if you look at the source code for a page that isn't working properly (Best to look at a simple page, or you may have a lot of code to look through): Wait for the page to load, then (in konqueror) do View -> View Document Source.
