Is there a Firefox plug-in for Outlook Web Access?

Posted

I want to access all of Outlook's functions but can't through Firefox, only through Explorer.

In Outlook Web Access through Firefox, I don't have access to menu options for italics, bold, underlining, etc., and I can't view the list of emails on one side while viewing the email content of one email on the other side. The place to access folders like the sent box is different, too, through Firefox. It's a very downgraded version of Outlook Web Access. How can I get the better version of Outlook Web Access while still keeping Firefox as my browser? Is there a plug-in? If not, can Firefox fix this issue with its browser?

Firefox 3.03 - why such an old version? 3.6.12 is the most recent release.

It is up to Microsoft to fix Outlook Web Access to work with Firefox or to come up with a plugin for Firefox. If Mozilla was to start fixing or write plugins for all the software out there that is made to work with Internet Explorer and not any other browser, they wouldn't have time to work on Firefox.

There are two Firefox extensions that will open IE in a Firefox tab. Many users install one of these addons to get around problems like you are having with Outlook Web Access.

Thanks for the info. I doubt that Microsoft would produce an add-on for Firefox, though, since they would want people to prefer the premium Outlook viewing that Explorer (a Microsoft product) provides. Making an add-on to support Firefox would be counterproductive to them, I would think.

Meanwhile, I will download the newer version of Firefox and try the add-ons that you've recommended. Thanks again.

There are a couple of Microsoft plugins for Firefox, one for Office and another for something called WPF - Windows Presentation Foundation - I've seen them listed in More system details... here; along with Windows Media and Silverlight.
