Internet Explorer web sites on Firefox

I have 3 web sites I wish to access on a regular basis, but these can only be accessed with Internet explorer. Is it possible to set up Firefox for these? as I do not wish to dual boot.As a newbie, I would like to leave behind Windows BSD's for ever.

Grab Wine and IEs4Linux ( IE6 under Linux, but a lovely warning from yours truelly - IE suxx0rz.

A lot of websites which say that aren't Firefox or Netscape friendly actually are. What you need in this case is purely the Firefox User Agent Switcher (

Have a nice day.

If it says you need IE then the page probably contains features that depend on the IE framework, like installing screensavers. I hate those pages too


agent, explorer, firefox, internet, switcher, user, wine
