    Can I run IE and Firefox at the same time

    I was looking for a smiley and ran into the spastic issue that was discussed back in March in the thread Smiley's and is seems that a lot of people are using Firefox. I have to use Internet Explorer due to some of the factory systems we access are set up to work with IE. If that's not bad enough, I have to stay on an older version too. How do some of these dark ages companies stay in business?

    Can I have Firefox and IE on the same computer and have them both open at the same time without one of them the other?

    Thanks

    I do it all the time. I nearly always use Firefox, but once in a while, I'll encounter some site where the site's creator hasn't seen the purifying light of Firefox and insists on making an Internet Explorer specific site. I just paste the URL into an instance of IE, do my business, and then hightail it out of IE as quick as possible.

    +1 those sites and Windows Update is about all the time my IE gets used.

    Firefox is the bomb. Those not using it should give it a try.
    Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.

    You can run IE inside of Firefox:

    Look for the add-on for Firefox called "Speed Dial".

    It will open all of your favorite sites as a thumbnail and you just have to click on where you want to go. Really neat.

    My wife is already sensitive to the amount of attention I give guns... I could just see her reaction to thumbing through pages of gun sites to get to her favorites...

    Windows are windows. Sure you can look out a different window whenever you want. Neither one of them will blind you. I avoid IE as much as I can.

    Which is a direct ripoff of an even better, faster browser, "Opera".

    Just make sure to check out the skins folder because some people have a problem with the black buttons.
