    Firefox 0.9.2 Extensions (Firefox 0.9.2)

    For some unknown reason, I'm having a devil of a time with Firefox extensions. For instance, I've tried for two days to install ieview.xpi.
    I've tried using Firefox, & searching online for ieview.xpi. Google found Juppyn.com Directory, when clicked on I got the IE infamous message
    that the page can't be displayed. I then tried another Google link for Info.com and got the same ding dang message.
    When I tried using Firefox, the download manager lists it as being installed but never completes. I must be doing something pretty durn
    stupid.

    Can someone straighted me out and help me install some of the extensions I want?

    Tres bein (thank you very much). I now have IEView.. At lease I was asked to close Firefox and it would be available when reopened. I haven't found it yet, but I'm sure I will.

    Great. When you open a page in Firefox, simply right click anywhere in the text area of the page and select "View this page in IE". What the extension does essentially is open IE at that particular page . This is useful for Microsoft sites, especially Windows Update and Office Update which will only work with IE.
