In trying to apply for a job, I get the following message: "The State of Texas HHSC Hiring Center requires your internet browser to be MS IE version 6.x or greater. Please update your browser and visit us again."
I try to apply for a job with a state of Texas agency, and get the following message: "The State of Texas HHSC Hiring Center requires your internet browser to be MS IE version 6.x or greater. Please update your browser and visit us again."
Is there a solution to this in the form of a faster version, or some other fix?

IE6 or later sounds pretty old.
If the site only accepts and works with IE then your only option is to use IE.
You are on Windows, so that shouldn't be a problem. They do exclude users on other platforms (Linux, Mac) by being that restrictive.
You can use an extension like IE Tab or IE View to use the IE rendering engine in Firefox.
