    Hi,
    I am pretty sure I know the answer to this and the reasons why, but want to ask since I don't see it asked and specifically answered.
    We have an .hta which each page links to. The application won't run on anything other than IE 7, 8. We're working on a different way to serve this up, but for nowthat's just the way that is. )c:
    The program can't be accessed/run by any other app. So, is it possible at all to have a non-IE browser open the app in IE?
    thanks in advance.

    If you are running Firefox see IE Tab :: Add-ons for Firefox. You can search the Mozilla site for more.

    I think Firefox, for example, will honor the registry settings for the .hta extension. What is happening now when you click the link?
