Open a IE window from parent page launched using Firefox

more options

We have an application that was integrated with several other legacy applications in the organization. We started upgrading our application to HTML 5 standards to make it work with all modern browsers such as Firefox, Chrome and Edge. Now the problem is that, our application has redirect links to 3 to 5 legacy applications that were coded for IE 7 and no where in the migration path. When the users click on these links while working on our application, Firefox opens a blank page, making them as blockers for our application uplift. 1) is there a way to force a link to open in IE while the parent page is launched using Firefox ? I have seen this link : https://stackoverflow.com/questions/43615678/force-a-link-in-i-e-to-open-in-firefox , but this is for the opposite requirement...open Firefox from IE. 2) how do you run applications requiring .cab files on Firefox ? if there is an answer for this, we don't need to worry about #1.

Thanks.

Hi Ravix5: What WestEnd said is right, this is a Firefox user support forum not a Firefox web developer forum. Please ask your question on stack overflow.

This is a End user help not a ticket support help. What your asking is two different help. AFAIK if opened in one browser it will only open in that Browser. The only difference would be if you set Windows to use a Default Browser by setting one that would force the default Browser to be opened. So you should really look at your Windows Browser default settings first. This is more a O/S setting then a Browser setting.
