How do I switrch to IE browser

Posted

I have Firefox at work and in the "Tools" tab I can select "view in IE" or right click at any website and I get the option to "Switch Rendering Engine".

Did this feature go away?

 Thank you, Mike

hello mike, this is not an inbuilt feature of firefox - you'd need an extension like this one to achieve that: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/ie-tab-2-ff-36

In Firefox on your work pc, look in "Tools->Add-ons->Extensions" as there is likely a "IE Tab:" extension installed like one mentioned above.

Also Firefox is not just for Windows.
