I installed "HP smart web printing" and went to EXT and it said it was disabled because firefox doesn't support this extention. Is there a possibility in the near future to consider adding this EXT program to be compatible?

It is compatible with Explorer but I really would prefer to work with Firefox but I also really like this HP program. Thanks

It is up to HP to make it compatible with Firefox. AFAIK, that add-on hasn't been compatible with Firefox for a few years already, like maybe the Firefox 3.5 version. I used that add-on back in 2006 & 2007 and gave up on using it because HP was always very slack on updating it when a new version of Firefox was released. Like it took HP 9 months to update it for a new version of Firefox and then 3 months later another new version of Firefox came out and it quit working again.

Browsers that HP chooses to support are the last item (Technical Specifications) on this page --> http://h71036.www7.hp.com/hho/cache/482779-0-0-39-121.html
