Some websites are not opening with Firefox browser. Those sites need only Internet Explorer. When we try to open those sites, Firefox will give error message like Sorry, IE is needed. For example if you try to open BSNL Broadband Usage Details site http://10.240.89.199, then Firefox will give error message Sorry, IE is needed. There are also some other sites that need only Internet Explorer.
There is a solution for this problem. We can make Firefox to open all IE needed sites with a Free Mozilla Firefox Add On IE TAB. Add-ons are small pieces of software that can add new features to Firefox. Firefox ie tab is Embedding Internet Explorer in tabs of Mozilla Firefox.
