Going to resend this without the attachment.

Did install Add-on on Mint, works with some sites, but did find some that it won't work with this page: http://www.mlxchange.com - May be because the page is from 2006

Different IE Tab developer: http://ietab.mozdev.org/

Source Code available on their site. If you have a specific page you want me to test let me know. Still testing out sites, but I'm having trouble finding any sites

looked here: http://toastytech.com/good/badsitelistframe.html

but they all look like old links IE 4.0 - 5.5.

Did you test this on Linux?

Seems that it really just allows genuine Microsoft IE (warts and all) to
run as an add-on to Firefox for Windows. No emulation or browser
spoofing, just the disadvantages of both. 

Be well - or at least have interesting symptoms!
